Doncare is a not-for-profit community services organisation providing services across all life stages. It provides support to families, the aged, youth and disadvantaged in the City of Manningham and surrounds. Doncare provides assistance and prevention through support and education. Its services are primarily delivered by approximately 520 trained volunteers who are managed by a small team of paid staff. Doncare has recently been funded by the Commonwealth Government to manage its own Community Visitors Scheme (CVS), matching Volunteer Visitors with socially isolated seniors, whose quality of life would be improved by ongoing friendship and companionship. A Community Visitor provides regular visits, one to one to a senior who receives Government subsidised Aged Care Services either in the form of a Home Care Package provided in the persons home or care provided in a Residential Aged Care Home. Volunteer Visitors will be matched with a recipient with similar interests or background as a starting point for building an ongoing connection. If volunteer opportunities with this program aren't currently listed on SEEK Volunteer, please contact Nicole Sargeant, Volunteer Coordinator, Doncare CVS Program, on 9856 1539.
