Request a Community Visitors Scheme volunteer visitor

Find out how to request a volunteer visitor with the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS).

Request a CVS volunteer visitor

We fund organisations to provide CVS services.  These organisations are known as auspices.

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 CVS auspice in the local area. It is also possible for older Australians receiving government-funded aged care services to refer themselves.

The CVS auspice will find a suitable volunteer to match with an older Australian in their local area. 

We have CVS network members for each state and territory who find volunteers to visit older Australians in their local area.
