We’re looking for special Volunteer Visitors who are ready to make a difference in 2024.

Your positivity can impact the way our residents experience comfort and contentment in their environment through individual or small group visits, an hour per week or fortnight.

You will be supported by paid staff who are dedicated to engaging our residents in ways that are meaningful and life-affirming to each individual person.

Please Note: To see our full range of Volunteer Visitor opportunities and to help us find you the most rewarding and suitable role, you must complete an online registration form, which will be forwarded to you when you apply for this role.
