Bring meaning to people’s lives through agendaless acts of human kindness with SHA’s Kindness Collective.
Thanks to an Innovation Grant from Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Australian Council on Social Innovation, we will be vetting, preparing and supporting people to serve as ‘community-based companions’ in our latest kindness-informed/citizen-led health initiative.
Placement opportunities to serve people impacted by loneliness (particularly existential loneliness) social isolation, complex health issues (including terminal illness), and bereavement will be provided by our referral partners from in healthcare, aged care and charitable funeral service.
Companions will be asked to go through an application/interview process; provide two referees; pass a Police Check; attend an induction day; participate in fortnightly online reflective practice sessions; and, have at least ten visits with community members over the next nine months.
