St John Ambulance Tasmania Community Care provides quality social support services to Tasmanians who may experience social isolation due to various factors. We aim to enhance the lives of our clients, foster meaningful relationships, and enable them to engage in activities that they find enjoyable and valuable. We assist our clients to maintain their independence, well-being, and social networks and support them to continue to contribute to their community.
Our social support services are delivered by compassionate volunteers, who are supported by a committed team of staff. All our volunteers are carefully selected, police screened, and matched on a one-to-one basis with clients based on skills, experience, and common interests.
Our volunteers can provide the following support in Southern Tasmania:
- Shopping (with or without the client)
- Community Transport to medical appointments (9:30 am – 4:00 pm on weekdays)
- Befriending – volunteers visit clients in their private homes for a chat, to share a cup of coffee, or to provide company to those alone or feeling lonely.
If you would like more information on this service or to become a volunteer please email email@example.com or call 1300 360 455.
