About the agency The Community Visitors Scheme organises visits on a regular one-to-one basis for matched volunteers to residents with ongoing support. Recruitment, training and support is provided by Government agencies; for Manningham, this is MS Australia.

Visits are at least once a fortnight and may include listening to music, chatting and reminiscing, watching television or going for walks or outings (depending on the health of the resident).
