During these challenging times we need volunteers more than ever, to support isolated people in our community to feel socially connected again. Personable and patient volunteer sought to assist in the facilitation of a social support lunch group that meets on a monthly basis at the Mulgrave Country Club, Wheelers Hill. The group provides a recreational and social outlet for participants.
The role will require you to draw on your group facilitation skills while supporting people to build valuable connections and enjoy group activities as part of their social goals. You'll need effective communication skills and demonstrate confidence to facilitate and support group discussion and participation.
