Make a difference in the life of an older person gifting your time as a friendly face and listening ear, home visiting and assisting with shopping. Volunteer by providing social support with a community and development service in Blacktown. As a social support volunteer you will provide one on one support for frail, aged clients assisting with shopping and visiting at their homes for friendly conversations. Perhaps you will enjoy a board game or card game, complete crosswords and listen to music.

2 hours per fortnight minimum, between 9.00am-4.00pm, weekdays. This opportunity would suit someone who is looking for a long term commitment, who enjoys the company of older people or who is looking to gain skills and experience in aged care. Also a great opportunity to meet new people and form friendships through volunteer social outings.

All out of pocket expenses such as travel and phone costs are reimbursed. A car, license and insurance is necessary. Orientation, training and support are continually offered whilst volunteering with this organisation.

Specific skills and requirements:

  • Working with Children Check
  • National Police Check
  • Drivers License (car)

Other skills and requirements:

  • Able to provide support to frail aged people and their carers.
  • Flexible with time.
