The program
Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross supports older people who live alone or who have few social connections to help improve their wellbeing. Red Cross social connection programs match those who are not in regular social contact with people with a caring and friendly volunteer. These programs include home visits, social outings, group activities, peer support and social phone calls.

The opportunity
This role suits someone over the age of 18 who is a good listener and can commit to one hour a week for a social visit to older persons living in their home or residential aged care facilities in the Narooma area.

The impact
As a Community Visitor Volunteer, you’ll brighten the life of at risk of social isolation by offering them company and friendship. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
