About the role

Social Health Australia brings forward innovative approaches to companioning people in crisis and combating the growing problems of social isolation and loneliness.

Now more than ever we all need to reach out and support people in our community who are struggling under the COVID restrictions. In this program volunteers are paired with older adults in need for weekly guided conversations. Sometimes this requires meeting face to face, at others it can be done digitally.

Prospective volunteers will be required to complete a series of five of five online induction sessions and have some reflective listening competencies.  All volunteers will be provided with supervision and on-going support.

Previous professional experience in social work, age care, counselling, psychology or similar would be preferred but is not essential.
