About this opportunity

MS Plus ACVVS is currently recruiting Macedonian-speaking Volunteer Visitors to visit older people in the Northern Suburbs.

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

Our volunteers connect with the wonderful older people in our community by sharing stories, helping with an activity or enjoying a short a walk.

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

MS Plus believes in a person-to-person approach and aspire to match you with someone local to you 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.
