Projects

 

Virtual Neighbour Project

Our club has launched a program called Virtual Neighbours - a new service to provide connectedness and assurance through regular phone or web calls to the elderly. We aim to reignite that 'local community feeling' of being valued and included in a time of social distancing & isolation. 

We say to our community, especially the elderly – you are not alone! You can always speak to your friendly, trusted & caring Rotary Virtual Neighbour.  

Our volunteer Virtual Visitors are recruited carefully taking into consideration their ability and willingness to commit to this important initiative. Our project team matches recipients and volunteers considering common interests where possible, and time availability. We enable the volunteers with the support required to provide this service

 

And we say to you - please help us with our outreach. If you would like to know more, do contact us on 0478 110 943 or via Facebook Messenger. 

If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please speak with them or their carers in the first instance and encourage them to contact us. This way, we can always keep privacy, safety and confidentiality topmost in mind.
