Aged Care Volunteer Visitor


Logo for genU

The Aged Care Volunteer Visiting Scheme (ACVVS), funded by the Australian Government, connects volunteers with an older person who is feeling lonely and/or socially isolated, to build friendships and break those feelings of loneliness.

The role:

Volunteers are based on shared mutual interests, hobbies, background, culture, personality, and location. Through your visits, you will help reduce feelings of social isolation, and maintain their connection to the community.

For you:

  • Make a real impact in the life of an older person including their sense of self-worth and belonging.
  • Meet new people and grow your connection to your community.
  • Receive ongoing support and training throughout your journey, including a fully funded Working With Vulnerable People's Check.
  • Be welcomed into genU’s friendly and inclusive workplace.

About you:

  • Have excellent conversation and listening skills.
  • Hold empathy and compassion about the wellbeing of an older person.
  • Have the ability to work independently.

Time Commitment:

1 hour per week or per fortnight between 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday.

At genU we strive to be as flexible as possible, and we can discuss what hours work best for you!
