Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme

We receive funding from the Australian Government to run the Aged Care Volunteers Visitors Scheme (ACVVS) in the Perth metropolitan area.

Many seniors suffer from loneliness and a sense of isolation for a number of reasons. The ACVVS is a free service that helps seniors improve their self-esteem and wellbeing.

To be eligible for a volunteer visit from Umbrella, a person must be from a multilingual, multi-faith, multicultural, or LGBTIQ+ background; at risk of social isolation; living in the Perth metro or Peel region and must also be receiving a home care package or living in a residential aged care facility.

Read the latest Australian Government fact sheet on the ACVVS program for clients receiving home care packages here:
