Out & About
Out & About is a free service for older people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI). As part of the National Community Visitors Scheme, our peer volunteers make regular visits to people who are receiving Home Care Packages or living in government funded residential aged care. We aim to build community connections and reduce isolation by chatting over a cuppa, watching a movie, participating in a hobby, game or any other enjoyable social activity.
Looking for a visitor for yourself or someone you know? Please download an Out & About Provider Referral Form or contact us. We accept self-referrals, or referrals from friends, family, Aged Care Assessment Services, or aged care providers.
Looking to volunteer with us? We recruit Out & About volunteers on an as needs basis. Please register your interest and we will contact you when a position becomes available in your area.
Alternatively you can contact our Out & About Coordinator on 03 9663 2474 or 0466 218 921. She is happy to discuss eligibility, any privacy concerns and answer any questions you may have.
