The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a free and government funded program featuring volunteer visits that provides companionship and friendship to older people, who are socially isolated or are at risk of isolation or loneliness.

Our CVS coordinator carefully matches volunteer with you based on your interests, background, location and life experiences to help ensure a long-lasting connection. CVS visitors may visit you and engage in a range of activities with you such as chatting, reading newspaper, playing card games and etc.

*Special remark – Due to COVID-19, all face-to-face visits are replaced by virtual visits (phone calls, video calls).
