During the Language Home Visits, various topics are discussed, such as education and health issues.

In mutual trust. The contact between you and it family is equal and accessible (some parents later become volunteers). • Parents themselves indicate what they want support for. • By emphasizing what is going well, the parents' self-confidence grows. • You visit the family every week. After a few months to a maximum of a year and a half of support, the parents continue on their own. This makes your volunteer work for families interesting, meaningful and very useful. You share your own experience with parenting. As a Home-Start volunteer you come into contact with special people, other cultures, other ways of life. “Working for Home-Start is nice and meaningful,” says one of our volunteers. Training and development The coordinator of the Home-Start location will guide you through the entire process of supporting the family. Under expert guidance, you help a family get back on track. You start with a preparatory training. There are various meetings every year. You exchange experiences with other volunteers and share knowledge about a subject.

Probation Service Netherlands is looking for volunteers!

Reclassering Nederland

COSA is a meaningful volunteer task. You support a sex offender in his re-socialization in society. This way you contribute to a safer society! As a volunteer at COSA, you, together with other volunteers, form a social network around a sex offender with the aim of breaking through isolation and working towards social inclusion. Volunteers support the person in finding their way in society. This can be done by offering a listening ear, offering practical help and undertaking activities. Drink a cup of coffee somewhere, take a walk and also provide support in developing your own network/hobbies and other activities. In addition, the volunteers are an extra pair of eyes and ears to help the sex offender stay on the right path. A COSA process takes an average of 1.5-2 years and requires a time investment of 2 hours per week. Social isolation When a sex offender returns to society after serving a sentence, unrest often arises. Social isolation, social exclusion and emotional loneliness lurk. COSA is committed, together with volunteers and professionals, to breaking this isolation. They support the sex offender in his reintegration into society. This has proven to be effective in reducing the risk of recidivism. Also become a COSA volunteer COSA is a beautiful, meaningful volunteer task.

Lyme line: Advising and listening for Lyme

Lymevereniging

The Lyme Association telephone line is a helpline for Lyme patients, their environment, care providers and people who have questions about Lyme disease and tick bites. Living with Lyme disease is complicated and always presents you with new challenges. Then it is nice to be able to ask your questions to an expert, or simply to tell your story to someone who understands what it is like to live with (someone with) Lyme disease. People who call the Lyme Association information line often have a specific question about Lyme disease or about the care of their loved one, but also to let off steam, express concerns or be able to talk freely.

 What you're going to do
 As a volunteer, you provide advice by telephone about Lyme disease and tips on dealing with this disease. You also offer a listening ear to people with Lyme and their environment. You know a lot about Lyme disease and use the information on our website (www.lymevereniging.nl) to give people advice and tools. Fluent command of the Dutch language is required. You work from home (this volunteer work can also be done from bed) and we will work with you to determine which times best suit your life.

 With your efforts, you and the other volunteers can make an important contribution to supporting people with Lyme disease and their loved ones. "I am in contact with other people, I have very nice conversations, you sometimes really get to know people and the work is very diverse.” “You don't know how grateful people feel when they are heard and you listen to them. It is very rewarding work.” "I am retired and this way I am still somewhat involved in society and I think that is a nice idea" Are you interested in making a difference in this way? Please feel free to contact us for more information or an introductory meeting.
