Hang out with someone who feels lonely

We ask a volunteer for a listening ear, attention, and your personal commitment in the broadest sense of the word. Think of cycling, walking, a cup of coffee, maybe rolling up your sleeves, playing a game. Any form of attention can be meaningful. People from the most diverse backgrounds call on us. Think of loneliness due to the loss of a family member, partner or deterioration of health, old age, loss of work, but also simply lonely because you can no longer easily participate in society. Having (usually) weekly contact means that there is something to look forward to. Then you feel seen and the day takes on color and meaning again. We find it very important to make the right match between you and the client. In addition to ensuring a good match, people can also participate in an activity a few times a year. Think of a New Year's moment, a fun outing, an afternoon in a beautiful garden, a Sinterklaas activity. You can also participate in this or help out, if that appeals to you. As a volunteer at Present in Vriendschap you are never alone. We have been around for over 7 years now and have built up a lot of experience. Several times a year we organize a pleasant but also substantive afternoon for the volunteers. Together with a professional, many important topics will be discussed. There are now about 90 people who call on us and we are happy with more than 40 volunteers who visit the people. You can read more about the ins and outs on our website. See also the newsletter. If you would like to know more or be involved, please send a message and we will make an appointment to get to know you. Betsie

We regularly organize an afternoon for the volunteers to educate ourselves, but also to meet and get to know each other better. All this with the help of an expert.

For a family with a limited network, I am looking for a long-term network for their nice, sweet, sociable girls aged 4 and 9.

The 9 year old girl is busier, energetic and caring. The girls love playing outside, board games, drawing, crafts, diamond painting, cycling and jumping on a trampoline. It would be relieving for the family if only the eldest could be cared for.
