Broken doorbell, exfoliated paint, or a laminate floor that needs laying? The Homeservice will fix it. Homeservice is the chore service of the Derde Schinkel and offers a helping hand to people with mental health problems in Amsterdam.
Every morning, our chore-team consisting of more or less eight men and women comes together at the Derde Schinkel, where the group is divided into teams before visiting our clients all over the city. Depending on the chore and your own preferences you can work independently or together with others.
The most common chores are painting and laying laminate, so it is an asset if you have some experience in either of these. We also have quite a lot of electronic chores, but sometimes guests want their administration sorted, buttons sewn onto a shirt or someone to do the groceries. The Homeservice can pick up all kinds of small chores in and around the house, but that does not mean that everyone has to do everything. People do what they can and enjoy and the supervisor can help if you want to learn something, but if you really are very clumsy this might not be the right place for you.
