Frequently Asked Questions
What is volunteering?
Voluntary work is work that you do unpaid and without obligation, for others or for society (source: Rijksoverheid ). You do it in the time that suits you. This is usually at a non-profit social organization. This can be in healthcare, welfare, sports, culture and education. But it may also be the case that you voluntarily help one or more private individuals with something they cannot (any longer) do themselves, for example doing odd jobs around the house or gardening.
Volunteering is therefore always a personal choice. For many people it is a pleasant way to spend free time, to meet new people, to gain experiences and to develop themselves. It is a way to participate in society. Volunteering can sometimes increase your chances of getting paid work.
What is a volunteer allowance / paid volunteer work?
Volunteering is never intended to provide economic benefit. However, reimbursements are possible. This may concern expenses that you can prove, such as travel expenses, paper or stamps. It can also be a reimbursement for costs that you do not have to prove.
In all cases, the Tax Authorities will stick to a maximum volunteer allowance of €180 per month and €1800 per year ( source: Tax Authorities ). These amounts apply to the total remuneration you receive for the work, plus any allowance for the expenses incurred.
If you receive more than these allowances as a volunteer, this must be stated with the wage and income tax.
can you arrange a volunteer for me?
You can place a request for help for free on this platform. We will then e-match these with suitable volunteers. If they are interested, they will send you a message.
You can also look in the help offer to see if there is a match for you. Even then you can safely send a message via this platform and get in touch with each other directly.

On NLvoorelkaar you can easily get in touch with people who ask for help, offer help or want to do something for each other.

"With Superboys we ensure that the boys do not end up in social isolation. I gain experience with it and it gives me a lot of energy."
"I love that you can both help and ask. If you help others, it makes it easier to ask questions yourself. Sometimes it even solves the problem, for example if you want to meet new people like me."
"Through this platform I reach volunteers that I don't know yet.
It also inspires and helps me to think about how we can innovate volunteering. This is how we find new faces, including young people."
