Friendship Enthusiasts Needed in Epping - ACVVS

Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Across: Epping VIC, Mernda VIC, Mill Park VIC, South Morang VIC

About this opportunity

MS Plus ACVVS is currently recruiting Volunteer Visitors in Epping.

Would you like to make a positive difference in someone's life, and your own? Do you have one hour, once a fortnight to extend the hand of friendship?

Volunteers share stories, help with a hobby, interest or activity, share a cuppa and a chat, enjoy a walk, listen to music or play a board game. Our volunteers play a vital role in the life of a person living in an aged care home or their own home through ongoing friendship.

If you are looking for a volunteer role that brings mutual joy and is flexible - this is the role for you.

Excellent verbal and non-verbal communication skills are required, including a strong commitment to others through this voluntary role.

Volunteers from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

MS Plus believes in a person-to-person approach and aspire to match you with someone local with shared interests and culture. We look forward to hearing from you.

MS Plus is funded to provide the Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS). MS Plus is a child safe organisation with a Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy”.
