We all need a friend

About ACVVS

The Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme provides a friendship connection to isolated members of our ageing community across the Hume Region.

This wonderful program brings you together with elderly residents in your community. Visit people in their home or in care facilities and develop friendships that can be cherished and rewarding.

 

As a volunteer you will need to:

  • Undertake a National Police Check (organised and paid for by us)
  • Undertake online training before commencing visits
  • Commit to fortnightly visits
  • Commit to 12 months of visiting

 

Volunteer Story: Ron and Fergus

Fergus visits Ron every week or two as a volunteer. They open up about the importance of building an intergenerational friendship and learning from each other.
