Repairers wanted

RepairCafé Diemen

RepairCafé Diemen organizes Repair Café on the first Saturday afternoon of the month in Diemen Zuid (Community Center) and the second Saturday afternoon in Center (De Diem Care Center). In the summer we have a stop of 2 months. For example, people can bring a defective device to have it examined by one of the repairers. These volunteers usually have a technical or other skilled background and will attempt a repair. That often works. In this way we help reduce waste, limit costs for the user and contribute to sustainability. Educational for everyone. Because the Repaircafe is increasingly visited, we are looking for new repairers. We offer coffee and tea and fun. If you can't come and help, that's no problem. We are also happy with incidental help. Many hands make light work. On October 8, Repair Café Diemen won the 2023 Sustainability Prize at the Sustainability Festival! Both the jury prize and the audience prize! We are looking for new repairers to strengthen our friendly team, you are welcome!

Board members for vibrant neighborhood initiative

Plan C

Plan C is a neighborhood initiative in the Diamantbuurt in the Pijp in Amsterdam, where hundreds of activities with a wide variety are organized every year by volunteers from the neighborhood. In addition to a cozy space, we also have a beautiful garden maintained by residents. The activities are diverse, just like the visitors, and are free of charge. We are now at a time when we are looking for new board members - would you like to lead this initiative? Create the program together with the enthusiastic volunteers and ensure that the subsidies for this come in? We look for people who can work well with all of our community residents from many cultures, of all ages, and from all walks of life. People who are enthusiastic about working in a collective, who are open to the multitude of activities, who can connect and inspire, who are involved and who can delegate. People who can switch well between residents, volunteers and institutions such as the municipality and housing corporations. People who can handle a budget and who can also apply for subsidies and funds. It is important to us to maintain autonomy so that we can be an active, vibrant and inspiring community center for our neighbourhood. We aim for a board of five people so that tasks can be divided. On our website (www.plancdiamantbuurt.nl) you can see what we do. We'd love to talk to answer your questions!

Volunteer wanted for family help for children

Chariny

Good day, We are a nice, friendly young family living in Amsterdam lively area of Zeeburgeiland. I have been with my partner for 29 years and we have 2 children aged almost 1 and almost 2 years old. Due to a prolonged hospital stay (more than 1 month) I became dependent on care. Now my care is somewhat complex and I am not eligible for much care or reimbursement. I can go home, but I am in an emergency admission process. This means that I have to go to the hospital every day for scans. I always took care of the children 24/7 and my partner was at work. Unfortunately, due to physical complaints, I am unable to take care of the children. And I am on bed rest, which is almost impossible. We are looking for someone who enjoys helping a family: - Daily care of children (I am present every day and can provide support, you are never alone with the children. • Get out of bed • Changing • To decorate • To feed • To play • Bring to bed - Light household duties - Cook if necessary - Company - Owns a car because I have to go to the hospital every day for scans The above is a beautiful message.

Visit an Amsterdam mother

Humanitas Amsterdam en Diemen

Many parents are on their own, can a parent vent to you? At Home-Start, volunteers provide support to families who need it. For them you temporarily become the neighbor/aunt/friend/grandmother they have always wanted. This support can already be used during pregnancy. As a volunteer, you visit your family once a week and become a trusted person for them. The support usually lasts six months to a year. The parent (usually mother) can discuss her concerns with you, ask for tips about parenting or pregnancy and everything that comes with family life. You can also help the family expand their network and familiarize them with their neighborhood, so that they can better find their place in society. What's so nice about that for a volunteer? You get out of your own bubble, get to know people you might not otherwise meet and learn about what happens in another family, sometimes from a different culture. Volunteers indicate that it is very satisfying and a great bond is often created. You will be guided by the Home-Start coordinator and before you start you will follow a fun volunteer training course. Are you looking forward to it? Then sign up quickly!
