Request an Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS) visitor

Find out how to request a volunteer visitor with the scheme.

Request a volunteer visitor

We fund community organisations (auspices) to provide volunteer visiting services.

Older Australians who may not have regular contact with friends or relatives, or are feeling isolated from their culture or heritage, can be referred by an aged care service provider to a volunteer visiting network member in the local area.

It is also possible for older Australians receiving government-funded aged care services to refer themselves. 

If you are interested in requesting a volunteer visitor, use this form.
