Community Visitors Scheme

What is the Community Visitors Scheme?

The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a national program funded by the Australian government that provides companionship to socially isolated people living in residential aged care homes.

A community visitor is a person who volunteers to visit and befriend a resident on a one to one basis.

Aged care residents come from a variety of different social and cultural backgrounds. By befriending an older person living in an aged care home, volunteers have a chance to make a positive difference to the resident’s life – as well as their own.

Volunteering as a community visitor can be a rewarding experience!

For more information about becoming a volunteer, contact the Volunteers’ Office on 9978 4126 or email volunteer@mosman.nsw.gov.au.
