About this opportunity
Many of our elderly do not have many visitors and our valued volunteers bring such joy to the lives of others. This role can be flexible and builds lovely friendships and support. Generally our elderly like to see their visitors anytime from 10 am through to 7 pm daily so this gives great opportunity and flexibility.

* During the Covid-19 pandemics, organisations should be providing all necessary Covid-19 safety protection measures for volunteers following the advice of both the Sate or Territory Governments and the Federal Government. Your safety and wellbeing is your priority. Familiarise yourself with the most up-to-date requirements and advice from the Australian and NT and SA State Governments.
* As each organisation provides different levels/types of insurance, volunteers are reminded to check with the organisation as to the type of insurance provided for volunteers (e.g. Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance).
* Best practice volunteer involvement recommends that a volunteer role should not be more than 15-16 hours per week.
