Southern Cross Care (SA, NT & VIC) Inc. are seeking volunteers who can assist in supporting residents/clients to stay active and live their best life at Bellevue Court Residential Care within our Transition Care Program, located in Gawler East.

Volunteers have many skills and life experiences that can assist in enhancing the quality of life of our residents by creating opportunities for them to blossom. We look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in any of the following Health & Wellness roles:

  • Wheelchair use - supporting clients to and from the gym
  • Having a laugh and chat while encouraging and motivating our clients to be active

Time required:

Ideally we are seeking volunteers from Monday to Friday 9:30am to 12:00pm. This position would suit a person who is required to complete 15 hours a week voluntary work, however we appreciate the commitment and support of our volunteers and work with each one to arrange the most suitable days and times for them to volunteer with us. Any time you give is valuable, be it 3 days a week or a few hours per month.

About Southern Cross Care:

For more than 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community in South Australia, Northern Territory and Victoria.

We're guided by our values of care, communication, creativity and teamwork, and we want people who share these values to join our team. 

All volunteers require the following;

  • A current National Police Certificate for the Purpose of Aged Care, or be willing to obtain one
  • Evidence you have received the 2022 Influenza Vaccination

In addition, as per the Australian Government mandate for Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF), Southern Cross Care requires that all volunteers based at a RACF are to be vaccinated, and require proof that they have received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.


Mandatory training is provided and Health & Wellness volunteers also have the option of being trained in Active Ageing Australia’s Moving for Life Your Way program.

If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help older people get out and about, enhancing their quality of life, we would love to hear from you.
