Ronald works for daytime activities during the week, he is often a bit lonely at weekends. He would like to go for a walk or lunch together or into the city.

Detailed description

With the vacancies we post here, we make sure that the client and the volunteer can act according to the RIVM corona guidelines. Being able to keep a distance of 1.5 meters is one of the most important conditions now.

Ronald is a friendly, cheerful man with an intellectual disability. He lives alone and needs a little more socializing and contact, but due to his disability this is difficult for him to arrange. He can have a nice conversation with you and he is crazy about Ajax. He has a season ticket and normally he can be found with them once every two weeks. He must miss that now.

Ronald is a good walker, has a scooter and likes to have fun. So if you have humor, some patience and occasionally time at the weekend, Ronald will be happy to go into town with you (many shops are also closed) or for a walk.

Volunteer work at Sherpa was not possible for a long time due to corona. Now that can be picked up again and Ronald is again eager to do something. As long as Ajax is not just playing at home yet, outings are really very welcome.

Volunteers are indispensable. We realize that very well. That is why Sherpa wants to take good care of the volunteer. There will be an introduction to see if this volunteer vacancy suits you. If you decide to assist us with this, you will work with an enthusiastic team of supervisors.

You will be asked for a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG). We take care of the application for you free of charge.

Every volunteer is insured during the execution of the work and you will of course receive a reimbursement for your travel costs. A party evening for volunteers is organized once every two years. Of course you will receive a Christmas package and the Sherpa magazine twice a year.

About Sherpa

Every person has the right to a pleasant life. Your own home and workplace where you feel at home. Prospects for a fun, meaningful day. A day when you meet others. Give content and shape to your life. Of course it's no different if you have a disability. That is why Sherpa supports people with a disability. With around 1500 employees and 560 volunteers, Sherpa provides services to around 1400 clients with an intellectual and / or physical disability. A team of experts provides the guidance and support that clients need to fully participate in society. They put the unique in every person at the center and work professionally, involved and in consultation with the client and his environment.

Sherpa is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers. How often you meet depends on you. Some like to go to the local market together every week, others agree on a monthly basis. The employees of the Social Deployment Office listen to your wishes, hobbies and interests and put them next to the questions of the clients. That way we always look for the perfect match!
