I am looking for social support services

Lifeline Tasmania has support for every stage of life through our Chats Program and the Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme.

The Chats Program is for Tasmanians over 65 years of age who are experiencing loneliness or social isolation, or those under 65 who are looking to be more socially active within their communities.


Chats offer a variety of social activities each month that enable participants to get out of the house, meet new people, share new experiences, and develop friendships.

Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS)

The Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme offers friendship and companionship to older people who are lonely or socially isolated in a residential aged care setting or have a current Home Care Package.


Regular visits from an ACVVS Volunteer can help to improve quality of life and reduce those feelings of loneliness and isolation.
