Community Visitors Scheme

Volunteer today - feel great tomorrow!

If you have a little spare time, would like to make a new friend or change someone’s life for the better, talk to us today about volunteering in the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS). This friendship program is about linking volunteer visitors with people who live in aged care facilities throughout the Bundaberg and Burnett regions.

Our volunteers take great pride in becoming a regular friendly visitor and enriching the quality of life of these people. Perhaps you’ll enjoy having a game of cards, listening to music, playing a board game, taking a short walk outside, help to write letters, reminisce about days gone by or simply have a chat and a cuppa. We ask that you are able to visit a minimum of once a fortnight and spend time doing what you both enjoy.

IMPACT’s Community Visitors Scheme is a valuable community volunteering opportunity that has been improving the lives of our isolated aged for more than 22 years. Interested in volunteering? Volunteer opportunities are available in Bundaberg, Monto, Gayndah, Childers and Gin Gin.

Get in touch today to see what exciting volunteer opportunities we have for you! Call Heather on 0448 035 891 or 07 4153 4233

Regardless of skill set, we love engaging with people with varied backgrounds and welcome all volunteers as valued members of our team.
