Multiple Sclerosis is funded to provide a volunteer visiting program – the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS). Volunteer visitors share stories, go for a stroll or have a cuppa, listen to music or play a game. Our volunteers play a vital role in the life of a person living in an aged care home or their own home through ongoing friendship.

Do you have a couple of spare hours during the week? We have a LADY in an Aged Care facility in NEWPORT who would benefit from receiving friendship from a Mum who has a baby or toddler who can visit during the week. She is non-verbal and enjoys engaging with a little one and playing balloons or Connect 4
You need to be warm, caring, reliable and be willing to commit to at least fortnightly visits for a minimum of 12 months.
