Volunteer - Transport Care Car Program


About us

 

For more than 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community.

 

We're guided by our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team.

 

Right now we’re looking for Transport Volunteers to support our Care Car Program.

 

About the role

 

For older adults, a lack of access to affordable, safe, trusted and age-friendly transport is a barrier to community participation and good health. At Southern Cross Care, we are addressing this need through our Care Car program, and we are seeking volunteers to help make it a success.

 

We are looking for driving enthusiasts, who have a great sense of direction and know their way around Adelaide.  You may help our clients to visit their family, attend a medical appointment or simply take a trip to the beach.

 

All trips will be within a 10km radius of our Community Health & Wellness Centre at The Philip Kennedy Centre  in Largs North, and will be provided in our modern, safe and fully-maintained vehicles.

 

We are looking for multiple volunteers to cover 4-hour shifts between Monday and Friday, 8am to 4pm.

 

This position would best suit those who love to be around people, have clear communication skills, patience and empathy.

 

All volunteers require the following;
A current C class licence with a good driver history
A current National Police Certificate for the Purpose of Aged Care, or be willing to obtain one
Evidence you have received the 2021 Influenza Vaccination
In addition, as per the Australian Government mandate for Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF), Southern Cross Care requires that all volunteers based at a RACF are to be vaccinated, and require proof that they have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help older people get out and about, enhancing their quality of life, we would love to hear from you.
