Volunteer LGBTI Home Visiting Program
The LGBTI Volunteer Home Visiting Program is looking for LGBTI volunteers to visit LGBTI people over the age of 55 by providing company and friendship to reduce social isolation of older LGBTI people.
The intention is that trained volunteers make regular one on one visits, for a minimum of two hours per month, creating personal connections and improved social engagement with older LGBTI community members.
Where possible, the volunteer will encourage and support the participant to join the LGBTI Connect Team’s Conversation Café outings to broaden their social support network and reduce the risk of dependence on just one volunteer visitor.
If you like socialising, have enhanced wellbeing and resilience, enjoy broadening your skills and enhancing the lives of others, then this volunteering role is for you!
ECH is currently seeking a male volunteer over the age of 55 to take up this role.
