Community Visitors Scheme – CVS
The Community Visitors Scheme aims to enrich the lives of socially and/or culturally isolated residents in Aged Care facilities and Home Care recipients living in the community. This is achieved by matching care recipients one to one with a volunteer visitor who commits to visiting a minimum of once a fortnight. Referrals are predominantly made by aged care providers, but can also come from friends, family or other agencies.
The CVS is a national program, funded by the Department of Social Services, under the auspice of Anglicare NT in the Northern Territory. Volunteers are located in the Darwin region, Katherine and Central Australia.
