Logo for Balwyn Evergreen Centre - BVRC

The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is advertising this role on behalf of The Balwyn Evergreen Centre.

As part of the Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS), Balwyn Evergreen Centre has received Australian Government funding to match volunteer visitors with seniors in both residential aged care (RACF) and at home (on Home Care Packages) who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation across Eastern Melbourne.

Seniors are particularly vulnerable to becoming socially isolated, especially if they don't have any family around. Our volunteers play an important part in keeping them connected with regular visits. If you like to chat and are willing to spend time with a senior in their home, then we'd love to hear from you.

Tasks and Responsibilities:

  • Spend time (1 hour weekly or at a minimum fortnightly) with a socially isolated senior
  • In their home or in residential aged care facility
  • Have a chat, share a common interest, go for a coffee/walk, make a new friend

Skills and Experience:

  • Compassionate
  • Interested in people
  • Reliable, honest


  • Make new friends
  • Build connections and belonging to your community
  • Know you're making a real difference to someone's life and your own

Note: The role will be based at a fixed address but involves travel to a home or aged care residence. We will place you with someone close to your home.
