Become a volunteer

Work collaboratively with people of diverse needs, backgrounds and cultures within a supportive framework?
Commit to on-going training?
Living Well Dying Well Volunteers provide accompaniment to individuals living with serious and life-limiting illness, as well as support for their family and carers. This accompaniment provides companionship, community welcome, support, connection and belonging to people who are navigating times of challenge, transition and change.
Volunteer Companions provide attentive presence, without judgement or attempting to ‘fix’ or ‘solve’ the challenges being faced. The role requires a person who is a good listener, and able to respond with sensitivity, compassion and empathy.
Are you someone with these qualities and skills who can offer 1-2 hours or more per week for most of the year, work collaboratively with people of diverse needs, backgrounds and cultures within a supportive framework and commit to on-going training?
