Summary

Do you have an empty agenda for the coming period? Become a buddy and do something for someone else!

Detailed description

Will you also become a buddy?

Do you put that smile on the face of someone who is lonely or chronically ill? Do you have time for a chat and do you like to go out together? There are many people who desperately need help. Buddy Network tries to help these people. Will you help too? Become a Buddy. Sign up via www.buddynetwerk.nl


What can you do?

As a volunteer, buddy, you have about two to four hours every two weeks or per week (for about a year) 1-on-1 contact with a client (buddy). With this you structurally offer a nice moment and support to the buddy in whom illness, loneliness or memory problems play a major role. Together with your buddy, you choose a moment that suits you. This is done in good consultation, we always find a suitable moment. After an introductory meeting, buddies follow an (online) basic training.


What does it get you?

Many of our buddies indicate that they would like to become a buddy in order to be able to do something for someone else. Ultimately, they indicate that it also yields them a lot: satisfaction, energy, new insights, beautiful experiences, the ability to put things into perspective, a new network or simply being grateful.


The buddy - buddy contact

The buddy can offer support in the field of loneliness, mobility or increasing the social network of a buddy. It is a beautiful and sustainable form of contact. Drinking a cup of coffee together outside the door or taking a walk through the neighborhood. The buddy offers a listening ear and supports the buddy by simply being there. At Buddy Netwerk, the motto time, attention and reinforcement is therefore central.


Your qualities:

· You have room for the other person's story.

· You have great empathy.

· You are reliable and careful in your agreements.

· You are a good communicator and a good listener.

· You are available for two to four hours per two weeks or per week.


We offer:

· A meaningful and valued use of time.

· A fun and substantive training.

· A mix of substantive and relaxed meetings: annual dinner, Masterclasses or drinks.

· Personal guidance/coaching.

· An allowance for the expenses you incur as a buddy. This is a fixed amount per month.
