We would love to have new volunteers join our Outreach team and help us to make a significant difference in the quality of life of someone impacted by chronic illness.
Did you know? People with ME/CFS, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have a reduced level of functionality that means they cannot complete normal activities of daily living. An additional burden is that doing too much physically or mentally can trigger Post-Exertional Malaise – a worsening of symptoms that can last for days or more.
Many of our clients would appreciate one-off practical domestic support to help them be prepared for a house inspection or visitors, or because they need to do a spring clean.
Specific tasks to be discussed and agreed between volunteer and each client. Volunteers are free to indicate what they are willing to do and what they are not.
Tasks may include:
We are able to cover travel costs if required, including bus fee or car travel at 27 cents per kilometer.
2-4 hours at a time that suits both you and each client.
Number and frequency of assignments is up to you.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
Applicants for this role are required to undergo Police vetting.

Please NOTE that support of this nature in someone's home requires that you agree to having a Police Check completed.
