About the role

We are looking for bilingual volunteers to be paired with culturally and linguistically diverse clients for social support.

The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a government funded program aiming to alleviate social isolation within our communities by pairing lonely people with volunteers who share a common interest and/or cultural background.

Our volunteers get the opportunity to change someone’s life simply by spending some quality time together doing something engaging. Like playing cards, watching a film, reminiscing, sharing a meal, reading, etc.

Multicultural Care will provide all the training and support our volunteers might need. All we ask is you complete a free National Police Check and commit to at least 1 visit per week. Visits will usually occur in an aged care setting, or in the clients own home, in Inner West, South West, and/or South East Sydney.

To learn more about this opportunity, get in contact with us on 02 9718 6199.
