Community care

Every day St John Community Care volunteers are making a genuine difference to the lives of older South Australians and people with disabilities living independently but at risk of social isolation.
Their help and companionship improves independence, self-esteem, and confidence to live at home, and can facilitate a reconnection with community life for those who feel isolated from the outside world.A little regular help can make a great deal of difference
to the life of someone else

"Someone to talk to, not so isolated. Having a good laugh, time goes so quickly. It’s great to talk to someone who has similar interests. Thank you for organising volunteers for me."
