For more than 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community.
We're guided by our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team.
Right now we're looking for Transport Volunteers to support our Care Car Program.
About the role
For older adults, a lack of access to affordable, safe, trusted and age-friendly transport is a barrier to community participation and good health. At Southern Cross Care, we are addressing this need through our Care Car program, and we are seeking volunteers to help make it a success.
All trips will be within a 10km radius of our Community Health & Wellness Centre at The Philip Kennedy Centre in Largs North, and will be provided in our modern, safe and fully-maintained vehicles.
We are looking for multiple volunteers to cover 4-hour shifts between Monday and Friday, 8am to 4pm.
This position would best suit those who love to be around people, have clear communication skills, patience and empathy.
All volunteers require a police certificate for the purpose of aged Care, a current C class licence with a good driver history and evidence of the 2021 influenza vaccination. COVID-19 Vaccinations are now required with the first dose before 17 September 2021 and confirmation of 2nd dose booked.
If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help older people get out and about, enhancing their quality of life, we would love to hear from you.
