Living room walk-in is looking for a socializer

Huiskamer de Nuts is for people who want to meet other people. People with a psychological vulnerability (from the neighborhood or from RIBW) can come here for a cup of coffee and a chat. The walk-in is for people who need social contact or a helping hand. During opening hours people can just walk in, often they are familiar faces. Two evenings a week a volunteer cooks and eats together. This walk-in has been run completely independently by volunteers for years, we are proud of that! If necessary, someone from RIBW can fall back on. The opening hours are: Monday 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM Tuesday 17:00 - 20:00 Wednesday 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM Thursday 17.00 - 20.00 (eating together) Friday 17.00 - 20.00 (eating together) Saturday 12.00 - 15.00 To ensure that visitors can visit during all these opening hours, we are looking for volunteers. Do you like to contribute to creating an inviting place and a cozy atmosphere, are you not afraid to start a conversation and is hospitality in your blood? Then we are looking for you! We are looking for someone who: * Has an open attitude and is interested in people with a psychological vulnerability. * Can sense how someone is doing and how things are going in the group: just start the conversation, or let the group talk together. You may also like to play cards or a game. * Preferably flexible. But 3 hours a week and/or on a fixed part of the day is also very nice. * Can join the biweekly consultation with the other volunteers. What does it get you: * You come into contact with people you don't come into contact with and learn know different worlds. * Pleasant conversation partners or playmates. * People who are happy that you are there. * Voluntary agreement (so that you are insured during your work) * Travel allowance * Appreciation (for example in the form of a gift on holidays)

Do you like meeting someone?

RIBW Nijmegen & Rivierenland

At our RIBW we have various requests from people looking for a buddy. People who want to drink coffee together at home or out, who want to walk or cycle, want to visit a (second-hand) shop, practice a hobby together, or otherwise. Men and women with different interests and all with the same need: to talk to someone and/or to do something. Because their network is often small, our people are looking for a buddy. If you can be open to someone with a psychological vulnerability, you are of great importance as a buddy with us. People-to-people contact is the most important, so you don't need any specific training. We ask if you want to meet with someone for 1-2 hours once every two weeks, more often is also possible. Handy if you can listen well with a stable personality. We offer guidance and intervision, so that you also get to know other buddies. You also sign a volunteer agreement and travel allowance is possible. We sometimes send you a nice gift and have an annual volunteer outing. And we have participants who are happy you came by 😊 Have you become curious and do you want to know how you as a buddy can really make a difference in someone's life? Then get in touch! Then we can meet and hear more from each other.

Make a lonely elderly person in your neighborhood happy!

Oma's Soep

Would you like to contribute to the life of an elderly person in your area? You can make the difference. Become a volunteer at Grandma's Soep! We are Oma's Soep, a fast-growing social enterprise that combats loneliness among the elderly by bringing young and old together. We do this by organizing old-fashioned fun cooking days, visiting lonely elderly people in the neighborhood and by organizing extraordinary events. We finance all of this by selling our fresh and healthy soups and meals in food service and retail. We are now active in 12+ cities and visit more than a thousand elderly people throughout the Netherlands every week. Our goal is to make as many elderly people happy as possible and you can help us with that! We currently organize two types of activities throughout the Netherlands every week. Cooking days The Grandma's Soup Cooking Days are always about fun and enjoyment. It is a unique combination to make delicious soups together with young and old. During the Cooking Days, vegetables that would otherwise be thrown away are used. The Cooking Days are organized at various locations and participation takes approximately 3 hours. An afternoon full of board games, tall stories, even more jokes and of course delicious soup! Soup-at-home days With the Soep-at-home days we reach the elderly who need company the most. We reach a large group of vulnerable elderly people through local GPs, physiotherapists, the supermarket around the corner and many other supporters. Every week we deliver packages full of our delicious soup, a motivating card and a surprise to the home of the elderly in your area. Take a moment to have a cup of coffee with your neighbor, take a walk or do something together. The Soup-at-home day is organized weekly from a fixed location and participation takes approximately 2-3 hours. Your smile, pleasant chat or short moment of contact can make a world of difference for our elderly. Everyone is welcome at Oma's Soep and participation is free for both volunteers and the elderly. Register by visiting our website for your city for current dates, times and locations. NEW! Grandma's Pen/Call Friend In addition to our weekly activities throughout the Netherlands, we now also bring young and old into contact with each other to become Pen or Call Friends. This means that volunteers and elderly people occasionally send each other a card/letter or call each other, creating a personal bond. In this way we combat loneliness on an even larger scale and at a deeper level. Are you participating? Take a look at our page where all the grandparents who would like to get in touch with someone like you are listed. Discover their hobbies and interests, leave a message with the person who appeals to you, and who knows, you might soon have a new friend to write or call!

The students of Aventurijn are supervised by the school's internship coordinators. We recently also opened a sewing studio.

This is to allow textiles to be used for longer and to prevent them from ending up in the waste mountain. What are you allowed to do?

In addition, you may teach other volunteers who are still inexperienced with the sewing machine the basic skills. What are you bringing?

For each morning that you volunteer for the KrijgdeKleertjes exchange shop, you can choose and take 2 items of clothing for yourself (or for someone from your family) for free. By facilitating the exchange point you contribute to promoting sustainability and meeting between people and participation. We think it is important that volunteers, in addition to employees, feel at home with us. That is why we ensure that everything surrounding your volunteer work is properly arranged.

Looking for a buddy for a 53 year old man

IrisZorg

Looking for a buddy for a 53 year old man from Nijmegen Participate! Our clients really want that too. You can help with that. Partly thanks to you, people are regaining control of their lives. Register now as a volunteer and meet our clients! What are you going to do? As a volunteer at IrisZorg you can really make a difference in the lives of our clients. They often live in a small world with few family or friends. Loneliness lurks. But as a volunteer you can break this and get people involved again. Simply by doing fun things together and 'being there'. We are looking for a quiet but also enterprising buddy for a 53-year-old man. The gentleman's world has become very small and this makes him feel lonely. This is the reason he is looking for a buddy. It is important that the buddy can offer a listening ear and go out together for a while. Mister likes action and liveliness. Is handy at odd jobs and has a healthy dose of humor. Mr. is looking for someone who can translate his life and the society around him. He likes football, swimming, walking, cycling, drinking coffee together, but also plane spotting, ship watching and looking at vintage cars are his interests. He also has a broad taste in music. The gentleman would like to go out together, watch a football match or go for a walk. After you register as a buddy, there will be an introductory meeting where we would like to hear from you who you are, what your hobbies are and what makes you happy. We will then see together whether the above client is a good fit for you. We will then arrange a first meeting. If it clicks on both sides, you have found your buddy! What do you get in return? Of course, you will also get a lot in return for your enthusiastic efforts. You meet interesting people, each with their own special story. You are of great importance to their recovery. This way you experience how fun and meaningful it is to work for our clients. But we also ensure that you can carry out your volunteer work well. We offer guidance, training, insurance, clear agreements recorded in a volunteer agreement and a volunteer allowance. Who are you? You are open in life. You can empathize with others without judgment. You are reliable and able to establish pleasant contact with our clients. If necessary, you can also be clear and indicate your boundaries. You know how to activate and enthuse someone in a natural way. You are available at least one half day per week. Who are we? IrisZorg is for young and old and for all walks of life. We are there for people who have problems in the areas of finances, relationships, work or (mental) health. Usually in combination with an addiction and/or (threatened) homelessness. We support clients towards recovery through integrated addiction treatment and social guidance. We could really use your help as a volunteer with this.
