De Luisterlijn

Making contact and listening with real attention can make the difference. For people who feel lonely, have worries, pain or sadness. This is what you will do: As a volunteer at the Listening Line, you offer a listening ear to people with concerns, sadness or problems. People often feel alone. You are there for the other person by listening, asking questions and organizing thoughts. You do this anonymously, by telephone or chat. You don't need any special prior knowledge to have the conversations. Because you do not have the role of counselor or advisor, but you have a conversation from person to person. Volunteers from all over the Zaan region, Waterland, Purmerend, Castricum and Uitgeest work at the Zaandam listening line location. Working from home and remote guidance are possible.

Phone and Chat volunteers Listening line

De Luisterlijn

People can come to you with a story, anonymously and safely. They feel heard, supported and sometimes they even gain insight into a problem or question. You become an expert discussion partner through good training and guidance. Volunteering that makes you a wiser person! One of the 26 locations of the Luisterlijn in the Netherlands is located in Den Bosch. Who we are looking for: You have a genuine interest in another person, you do not make judgments and you have an open attitude. You are currently stable in life and you would like to develop further in the field of listening art and conversation. Because you are entrusted with a lot as a volunteer at the Luisterlijn. Sometimes subjects you didn't even know existed. Not an easy job, but certainly not a boring one either. Every conversation is different. What we ask: Working at the Luisterlijn requires space in your head, heart and agenda. You work approximately one shift per week of an average of four hours. You can schedule the services yourself. Once a month you listen at night to people who can't get to sleep. The night shift naturally demands more from you than a day shift. Yet it is precisely the stories in the night that make this work special. In addition to the telephone assistance service, the Luisterlijn Den Bosch is also looking for volunteers for the chat services. Before you get started, you will receive a thorough training that is mandatory. In addition, there is an instructive group and training meeting every month where your presence and commitment are expected. The Listen Line strives for a long-term relationship with the volunteer of at least several years. This is partly due to the investment in training and supervision. In Den Bosch you can perform the services on location, but home working options are also negotiable. However, it is important that you have a suitable, closed space to make work at home possible. What we offer: Intensive, but enriching and meaningful. That is how most volunteers experience their work. It is very satisfying to be able to mean something to someone else. What is at least as important is that you can learn a lot through volunteering itself, it enriches you as a person. Thorough training and guidance: Before you get started, you will receive training. The training consists of 12 to 14 modules (in total approx. 32 - 40 hours of training spread over 6 to 14 weeks). During the training you will also be guided in practice by an experienced volunteer. During the training process there are a few moments when we together look at whether the work and the organization really suit you. After completing the training, you will start working independently. You will also receive training and personal guidance afterwards. Because we invest heavily in our volunteers with the training courses, we aim in principle for a long-term relationship with the volunteer of at least several years. We also offer an allowance for travel costs. Sign Up: Are you excited? We would like to hear from you! Register on our website www.de Luisterlijn.nl and we will contact you as soon as possible.

'The equal, beautiful conversations in which you really have contact are a gift to yourself and provide the motivation to do this work voluntarily.' 'I usually close my laptop after a chat service with a warm feeling.' Would you like more information or register? We would like to meet you!

Do you often hear that you are such a good listener? Then the Listening Line is looking for you. As a volunteer with us, you offer a listening ear to people with concerns, sadness and problems. Anonymously. At a time and place that suits you. Would you like to know more about volunteer work at the Listening Line? Then take a look at our website www.delistenlijn/volunteerwork. If this is something for you, we will first offer you training. Professionals help you to further develop your listening and conversation skills. A training course will start near you soon. Register via our website. Even after the training, we will continue to guide and support you professionally and you will keep in touch with a close team of volunteers. Anne has been a volunteer at the Listening Line for five years. “After my retirement I had a lot of time, so I decided to register with the Listening Line. The conversations are sometimes very intensive; people often call to talk about loneliness, psychological problems or difficult relationships. But what you get in return is priceless: you were able to help someone, just by listening.” About the Listening Line 1,500 volunteers help people to cope (for a while) with worries, pain and sadness. They work from home or from one of 28 locations. The Listening Line has been the largest organization in the Netherlands that provides emotional support at a distance for 65 years. The Listening Line is part of the WMO and is financed by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. What do we offer - Fascinating conversations that are meaningful not only for the other person but also for you - Thorough training in conversation techniques and good guidance - Thematic meetings on topics such as loneliness, depression and loss - You will receive a certificate after the training What do we ask? - Eager to learn and open attitude - No specific prior education - Dedication of an average of 4 hours per week - Twice a month you work a night shift of 2 hours - Participation in our training near you.

With residents to the market on Tuesday morning

Stichting Vitalis woonzorg groep

The residents of Vitalis Vonderhof (nursing home aimed at elderly care) really enjoy going to the market in Eindhoven every Tuesday morning. To allow as many residents as possible to enjoy this, we need extra hands. When you come to help us, it means a pleasant morning for one of our residents that he / she can really look forward to. We go to the market with a group and residents get the chance to buy their groceries themselves, to be outside for a while and to have a nice chat. What should you do? You are present at Vonderhof at 09:45 to leave for the market together. Around 12:00 you will be ready again and you have made someone's day! Do you want to help us? Send me a message and we will discuss the possibilities together while enjoying a cup of coffee / tea!

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.
