Looking for things to do during lockdown?

2 Apr, 2020

Join the Community Visitors Scheme to easily help isolated senior citizens.

Many older Australians are currently experiencing additional social isolation in their own homes and in aged care facilities due to COVID-19.

The Community Visitors Scheme connects volunteers with socially isolated older people in our communities and has been running in the Northern Rivers for over twenty years.

We are calling out for Community Visitors Scheme volunteers now, to connect with these older people via telephone, email and video connections such as Skype and Zoom.

If you’d like to brighten up an older person’s day, improve their well being and reduce their social isolation, get in touch with us now to become a volunteer community visitor. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like.

For more information and to register your interest, call 02 6621 7397 or email volint@nrcg.org.au.

Many tracks, one road, sustaining community.
