COMPANIONSHIP AND SUPPORT VOLUNTEER

Migrant Support Long Term Cabramatta, NSW

About this opportunity

A female Volunteer is needed to provide companionship and social support to an Arabic speaking lady in the Cabramatta area. This lady is full time carer to her disabled son and is in need of a companion to take her out of the house and engage her in social activities.

By spending time with this lady you can help to build her social confidence, provide practical support and encouragement. You can help to reduce her social isolation and act as an important link to her community.

This is a very rewarding and positive role that requires an ongoing commitment to make weekly visits, for at least 6 months. You would need to be over 18 years of age, be willing to undertake a Working With Children Check and National Police Check, as well as provide 2 referees. The ability to speak Arabic is also essential.

All Volunteers receive training, induction and workplace health and safety instruction before they start.

You can make a real, transformational impact on this lady’s life, in so many ways, through ongoing support and companionship. If you would like to join this Organisation’s dedicated and friendly team of Volunteers, we would love to hear from you.
