While loneliness and isolation can affect anyone’s mental health, the impact can be more severe for older people.
Our Community Visitor Scheme is all about reducing social isolation of older LGBTI people by providing company and friendship of Volunteer Visitors.
Our trained volunteers make regular one on one home visits where they chat over a cuppa, listen to music, watch a movie or participate in a hobby, game or other activity.
The Community Visitor Scheme is a free service that operates across the Sydney metropolitan area including the Blue Mountains.
The service is available to recipients of Australian Government subsidised Home Care Packages who have been identified by their aged care provider as experiencing or at risk of experiencing social isolation, whether for social or cultural reasons or because of disability.
To get involved as a client, volunteer or service provider please contact us: (02) 9206 2028 or email: [email protected]con.org.au
