Could you spare one hour a fortnight? - WE NEED YOU!

Cowra Information & Neigbourhood Centre is currently seeking Volunteer/Visitors to take part in the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS). The CVS is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health, it is a free service to help older people maintain social connection.

Volunteer/Visitors provide an hour of their time each fortnight to provide friendship and companionship to the older people in our community. Volunteering as a community visitor can be a rewarding experience. By becoming friends with an older person, you can make a positive difference to their lives as well as your own. Alternatively, do you know someone who would benefit from becoming a Recipient? CVS visits are available to anyone receiving government-subsidised residential aged care or Home Care Packages, including people who are approved and on a waiting list for residential care or home care packages.

To find out more about the scheme contact Bronwyn Sainsbury on 6340 1100.
