Uniting Social Support Program connects people to the community to support them to live a happy and healthy life. It assists people to keep doing the things they love!
Andrea* enjoys yoga, gardening, cooking and music! She seeks a patient and understanding volunteer with an interest in morning melodies and Yoga to support her to reconnect with her interests and community.
You'll need effective communication skills and an ability to creatively reconnect Andrea to her interests. Visits may include accompanying Andrea to morning melodies and Yoga sessions. Be available for fortnightly visits. You will hold a valid Australian driver’s license and have access to a car that you will be prepared to transport Andrea* in during visits. Practical communication skills and confidence to work independently are a must.
As a valued member of the Social Support Team, you'll have access to ongoing training and development, opportunities to meet new people and develop new skills, and support from a dedicated volunteer coordinator who will assist you throughout your volunteer journey. You will be volunteering to inspire people, enliven communities and confront injustice to make an impact in your community.
Interested? For further information, please contact 13 93 75 and quote SM-S-08. Please note that visits will take place in line with Uniting and COVID-19 safe guidelines. *Name changed for privacy.
