Volunteer, Community & Charity / Associations / Non-Profit

Job description:
  • Volunteer from your own home or workplace!
  • 5 minutes of a morning or 20 minutes a week can improve the life of someone living alone
  • Flexible roles to suit your available time

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, people with disability and people recovering from illness to help improve their wellbeing.

Red Cross provides daily telephone calls to check on the wellbeing of people who live alone and are at risk of an accident or illness that may go unnoticed; or weekly social calls to those experiencing social isolation.

The opportunity

This role suits someone who has good listening and communication skills and is looking for an ongoing volunteer role. Telecross is making a brief daily call, on a monthly roster basis. TeleCHAT requires a willingness to commit to making one longer call per week, for 6 months.

The impact

As a Telecross or TeleCHAT volunteer, you’ll provide peace of mind and be a friendly voice to people who are elderly or have a disability. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.

For more information, please see the volunteer role description or contact Jocelyn Morris on (02) 8295 2754.
