LOOKING FOR COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS
We are looking for passionate people to help seniors in their community! Be the change!
“Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.”
Are you someone who would like to make a difference in your community? Are you passionate about helping elderly? Would like to be a champion for human rights?
Seniors from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) backgrounds are at risk of missing out on critical government support. Statistically this group of seniors are least like to access aged care services on time, resulting in unnecessary hospital admission that can lead to deterioration of physical and mental health. The Navigator project’s aim is to address this issue by educating ethnic communities and empowering them to make a difference for their own elderly. Help us to make a difference!
The Community Champions model is designed to help Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) seniors to learn more about Government supported aged care programs. Community Champions are local people from CaLD clubs and associations who volunteer to promote the aged care system through the Aged Care System Navigator Trial – acting as a bridge between CaLD communities and mainstream services. They support awareness of and access to aged care services and motivate seniors and their families to increase their knowledge about the aged care system and to access services in a timely manner.
Umbrella will provide orientation and training (in-house and external, depending on your needs), all materials, work reference and we pay for your police clearances. Contact us today!!
