JoCare is a free service supported by St Joseph’s parish in Malvern and Cabrini Health. It aims to encourage friendship and support within neighbouroods in the local Malvern area. A focus of the program is to engage with socially isolated individuals; being involved in local activities is vital for personal and communal well-being.
JoCare offers the opportunity for volunteers to provide non-professional acts of service to people living independently in the local Malvern area. These might include visiting for a chat, sharing a book together, going for a walk, having a cuppa, or teaching/learning a new skill. Residents in the Malvern area are welcome as volunteers or as recipients of the services offered by JoCare.
