Buddy for people with mental health problems

The Regenboog Groep is committed to people with mental health problems and with very limited social contacts. One of our activities is to establish a buddy contact between a volunteer and a participant; they meet up once a week. Note that our services are only for people living independently, and not for those living in protected housing.

Would you like to volunteer?

If you have a couple of hours a week to spare you can become one of our volunteers. This experience will not only look good on your cv, you will also receive professional training at the Volunteer Academy and intensive individual support.

You can contact us at +31 20 531 76 00 or send an email (vrijwilligerswerk@deregenboog.org). Please note that there are limited opportunities if you do not speak Dutch.

What can you do?

We need your help! You can help by investing your time as a volunteer, by working with Amsterdam people with unusual stories. Or become a donor! Your money will be well spent on care for homeless people, aid for (former) addicts and people living in poverty or social isolation. You are always welcome to drop by and see how your money is spent.

Or why not buy one of the products from our online Gift Shop? A present for someone you know, perhaps. It's all contributing towards a better society. And that's great, isn't it?

Voluntary work in Amsterdam

Invest some time in another resident of Amsterdam and broaden your horizons. And feel good too about yourself too.

Become a donor

A decent life for all residents of Amsterdam. Help us achieve it by registering as a donor. We guarantee you'll feel good about yourself. And that can't be bad, can it?

Give someone a gift

Discover the unusual products in our online shop and give them to someone as a gift. Or donate an actual gift to a specific Regenboog project. Any of these things will make a difference to us!
