Community Visitor Scheme

UCWB’s Community Visitor Scheme (CVS) is funded by the Australian Government and uses volunteers to visit people who are experiencing or who are at risk of social isolation or loneliness.

The CVS provides friendship and companionship by matching aged care recipients with volunteer visitors for either group visits in aged care homes or one-on-one visits to home care package recipients.

How can I connect with UCWB for a volunteer visitor under the CVS?

Any care recipient whose quality of life could be improved by regular companionship can be referred by:

  • their aged care provider
  • a family member
  • friend
  • self-identify that they would benefit

Call UCWB on 08 8245 7196
