Join the inner south lunch group! | Social Support | Caulfield

During these challenging times we need volunteers more than ever, to support isolated people in our community to feel socially connected again.

Personable and engaging volunteer sought to assist in the facilitation of the inner south lunch group. The group provides a recreational and social outlet for participants. The role will require you to draw on your group facilitation skills while supporting people to build valuable connections and enjoy group activities as part of their social goals.

The volunteer will need effective communication skills and demonstrate confidence to facilitate and support group discussion and participation. Be prepared to use your own vehicle to provide transport assistance to clients with reduced mobility, who may require the use of a four-wheel walker or stick. You must display respect for diversity and support a positive interaction between participants in the group. The skills and confidence to work independently are essential. You will need a current Australian driver’s licence and your own road worthy vehicle. Induction, ongoing supervision and opportunities for professional development provided.

Interested? For further information, please contact 13 93 75 and quote CA-MAR-86.

We are preparing to recommence our social support groups. Please be aware that running of the group will be subject to government and Uniting COVID safe directives.
