We are seeking volunteers to visit older people in their homes on a weekly or fortnightly basis, for friendship and companionship as part of the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS).

The CVS is a national program funded by the Australian Government to help enrich the quality of life of people who are socially isolated or lonely. Home Visitors will be matched with residents in line with their interests with the purpose of developing an ongoing relationship.

Training and support will be provided to help ensure a rewarding and fun experience. We are also looking for people who would like to be visited at home as part of the CVS program.

Home Visits are available for any person on a Home Care Package and the program is free of charge. Residents
benefit by gaining a new companion and this can help diminish feelings of loneliness and isolation.

If you or someone you know would like to be involved, please get in touch with your Home Care Package provider or contact CBCHS.

For more information, please contact 8587 0322 or email volunteers@cbchs.org.au
