“The right training and experience make a candidate qualified. The right personality makes them excel.”
Imagine your grandmother or grandfather came into your care. Their care needs have increased over the years and it has come to the point they cannot manage daily tasks by themselves. What would you have to do to manage their care? What would you do to make sure they maintain a quality of life?
Our mission is to empower seniors to fully enjoy their Golden Years. We believe, language, gender identity, culture or financials should not be a barrier to access quality services. This vision for life-changing quality care is made a reality through the work of our dedicated support workers as they seek to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of all who choose Umbrella Inc. Working at Umbrella Inc. offers challenging work, flexible hours, the possibility to combine work with study, lots of variety and most importantly the opportunity to change someone’s life.
Working at Umbrella Inc. is more than just a job – it means to belong to a caring and fun multicultural family.

Volunteer for the Community Visitors Scheme Program
Practice a language and change someone’s life for the better
We are looking for linguistically diverse volunteers!
There are many elderly individuals from ethnically, LGBTI+ or gender diverse backgrounds who find themselves isolated in the community. As a volunteer, you can change their life by providing them with companionship and assistance. Our unique Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) links volunteers with social isolated seniors who are linguistically, culturally, gender or LGBTI+ diverse. These seniors might be living at home or in aged care facilities throughout the Perth Metropolitan area.
We ask that you are able to visit a minimum of once per fortnight however the amount of time spent during a visit is subject to your own availability. During this time you may decide to chat together, share a cup of tea, play a board game, go for a short walk in the garden, listen to music together or help write to their family.
Umbrella has 20 years experience working with volunteers. This program provides you with the opportunity to meet new people, gain working experience, attend new training for free, practice a language and make a difference in your community. We provide orientation and training (in-house and external, based on your needs), reimburse your travelling cost and pay for your police clearance(s).
