Health & Wellbeing Ambassadors

AMCS has established a community Health and Wellbeing Ambassadors Hub involving dedicated multilingual volunteers/community leaders from at least 10 cultural backgrounds across Metropolitan Melbourne to support Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) seniors.

Our age-friendly Ambassadors act as conduits between AMCS and CALD seniors and the wider community. They will support seniors to improve their information, knowledge, literacy, communication, and social, economic, and civic engagement.

What is involved?

To take up a role as an AMCS Health and Wellbeing Ambassador, a range of mentoring and educational workshops will be arranged to empower the recruited volunteers to develop their capacities, knowledge and confidence.

Workshops are co-designed, involving volunteers and professionals from partner organisations to identify the skill gaps of volunteers and tailor the training to bridge these gaps.

Objectives of our AMCS Health and Wellbeing Ambassadors Hub

  • To recruit and train multilingual volunteers to take up roles as Health & Wellbeing Ambassadors, acting as peer supporters for CALD seniors and encouraging community participation.
  • Promote health and well-being, social connectedness, and inclusion of CALD seniors by facilitating equitable access to aged and community care services, education, resources, and information.
  • Increase CALD seniors’ participation in all aspects of community life, including AMCS community initiatives.
