ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The JNC acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work, the Gadigal and Bidjigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that these lands always were and always will be Aboriginal lands. We celebrate First Nations Peoples’ connection to the land and recognise the importance of Indigenous voices and culture. We would like to advise that there may be images or videos on this website of people who have since passed.

Each trip takes roughly 5 hours, with stops for morning tea and lunch. See our Newsletter for the bus outing calendar.

Individual Support

SOCIAL SUPPORT

JNC provides individual social support to older people. We match you with a Social Support Worker or volunteer who can assist you to get out into the community for shopping, errands, or simply go for a coffee, or a walk or a drive to a local beauty spot.

FRIENDLY PHONE CALLS

For those feeling lonely or isolated or are house bound, our Friendly Phone Call service will enable you to have a regular chat with one of our volunteers. Our Friendly Phone Calls are available in a variety of languages, so let us know your preference and we will do what we can to make it work.

HOME VISITING

JNC can organise one of our friendly volunteers to visit you at home if you are housebound or would like some extra social connection. Our wonderful volunteers can spend time with you having a chat, spending time outside in your garden playing cards or board games or assisting you with your mail. They can also assist you in using  your digital devices.
