Community support unit volunteers

Volunteer with us and support older people to:

  • attend medical appointments and other activities
  • increase their skills and confidence to go online safely
  • increase social connections by having a regular visit in the home or going out in the community
  • reduce social isolation by making regular phone calls to check in and have a friendly chat.

No experience is needed, but it is important that you:

  • have good communication skills
  • are reliable and punctual
  • have a genuine interest in older people's needs, hopes and aspirations
  • can maintain confidentiality.

If you would like to find out more, or have ideas for new volunteer roles, call Stephanie Harper on (03) 5422 0258 or email
