The buddies of de Regenboog Groep usually had their own coming out experience. They feel solidarity for people who are less fortunate, they do not judge and they are open-minded people. Before they start buddying they receive a training and information about homosexuality, coming out and the most common problems and requests for help.
A buddy meets the client regularly, and supports the client in good and bad times. A buddy does not take over any responsibilities, but helps someone back on track and stimulates someone to pick up their own responsibilities. During the contact period de Regenboog Groep offers the buddy professional support and peer group meetings.
The Regenboog is always in need of buddies. Please call us at +31 20 531 76 00 if you want to register. Please note, however, that there are limited opportunities if you do not speak Dutch.
