Community Visitors

My Choice Community Visitors Scheme offers regular friendly visits that are relaxed and social in nature, enriching older people's and volunteers' lives with company and friendship.

Community Visitors volunteers visit a resident weekly or fortnightly for an hour or two on a regular basis. They

  • share morning or afternoon tea; listen to and share experiences and stories;
  • have a good chat and a laugh;
  • do craft together; write a letter; read, play cards or a game;
  • watch the footy or cricket together;
  • or other activities to suit the resident.

Community Links Program

UCWB are looking for volunteers to make friendly phone calls to Aged Care recipients in order to increase their social connectedness. Volunteers will work in a friendly office environment making social phone calls to people in the community who are experiencing some degree of social isolation. UCWB staff will be available to guide volunteers through their involvement with the program and will be on hand to assist with any help that may be needed. Volunteers will require a friendly personality, strong communication skills and an ability to relate to people from all walks of life.

For more information about this volunteering opportunity please call 08 8346 5249.

Volunteering at UCWB events

UCWB regularly holds events that provide information, education and social opportunities for our community of service users. There are opportunities for volunteers to assist UCWB at these events on an ad hoc basis. Duties would generally include helping to set up, providing social support to attendees, working as part of a team to ensure the event runs smoothly and helping to pack up. This opportunity would suit volunteers with limited availability or could be combined with other volunteering work.
