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.

Looking for a buddy for people with dementia

Hulpdienst Nijmegen

Do you sometimes forget something? Looking for a buddy for people with dementia! Dementia hits! You can make a difference by making contact, being there, listening and supporting. Will you become a volunteer for someone with dementia? You visit someone with dementia about once a week or 2 weeks, for a cup of coffee and a chat, a game, a walk, a ride in the car, or to run an errand together. This provides structure to the week, provides a nice distraction and usually also relieves the burden on the informal caregiver (partner or children). Because your arrival allows an informal caregiver to take some time for themselves. What we ask for is good communication skills and a healthy dose of patience. What does the Nijmegen Emergency Service have to offer the volunteer?: – pleasant and appropriate contact with a client; – space to discuss together what suits you and what does not; – coordination by professional employees, where short lines and personal contact are paramount; – A (theme) meeting and an outing 2 to 3 times a year (on a non-binding basis); What makes the work worth it?: We have been helping people in difficult circumstances since 1959. A few hours a week are usually enough to get someone out of isolation, provide distraction and give the informal caregiver some breathing space so that people can continue to live at home for as long as possible. Are you interested? Let us know, we would love to get in touch with you.

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.

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.
