Volunteering with the Aged

Volunteering offers opportunities for you to become involved in your community, meet other people and make a positive contribution. Latrobe City Council requires volunteers for its Meals on Wheels, 'We Care' and Planned Activity Group programs. These programs are aimed at the frail aged and people with disabilities.

You do not need experience or qualifications, just a current police check; and a genuine desire to help people take part in community life. You can make an enormous difference in the lives of frail, aged people and people with disabilities.

Planned Activity Groups (PAG)

Planned Activity Group provides regular outings, recreational activities and social interaction for those who are isolated and lonely. Centres are located at Traralgon and Yallourn North.

Attendance includes a nutritious two course lunch, morning and afternoon tea. Transport is provided to and from the venue.

Koorie Elders Planned Activity Group

This group meets weekly for lunch and a wide range of activities including cards, bingo, craft, and artwork, or an occasional excursion.

We Care Program

This service matches volunteer and participant to offer a sense of security, social contact and outings.  Friendships based on shared interests and experiences are a focus of the program.
