SummaryDo you like to ensure a clean working environment for all volunteers and a filled coffee corner? Then this volunteer work is for you!
With a group of about 35 volunteers, we are committed to transporting people in the neighborhood safely, fun and quickly so that they can continue to do their daily activities.
And with so many people in the house, they drink a lot of coffee, use a lot of cups, often use the toilet and nobody wants to miss out when they open the pantry.
To ensure that it looks spic&span here, we are looking for one or two hosts who like to:
1) do stock management (1 or 2 times a month)
2) shopping nearby (approximately once a month)
3) light cleaning work (once a week)
4) want to help out at a volunteer party or other gatherings to get things ready, etc.

About Stichting Buurt Mobiel
The Buurt Mobiel Foundation is led by two passionate and enthusiastic initiators in the Overvecht, Zuilen, Ondiep and Noordoost districts. We have heard for years that the elderly and other residents need suitable transport, especially for shorter journeys. The regular bus has a fixed route, which makes it difficult for some people to get to a stop. And the Regiotaxi runs everywhere, but you often have to wait a long time. So... time for action!
What are we doing?
We offer pleasant, safe and appropriate transport in the Utrecht neighborhoods of Overvecht, Ondiep, Zuilen and Noordoost. We take passengers to their destination and can direct passengers to all the beautiful amenities that are already there. As a result, they experience more control and freedom to move around and to continue to participate. The voluntary driver takes the time for a chat, has a listening ear and can direct you to certain facilities in the neighbourhood.
How do we do that?
A volunteer driver can pick up a passenger at home, pick it up somewhere along the way (we don't drive on fixed routes like a bus), or pick it up in a neighborhood, such as at a shopping center. They help the passenger with a shopping bag, cane, walker or folding wheelchair. Buurt Mobiel is the ideal service for, for example, a visit to a doctor, pharmacy, shop, vaccination location, hospital, acquaintances, family, activity, cemetery, theater, restaurant, etc. Just call Buurt Mobiel and we will drive ahead!
Neighborhood Mobile works on the basis of support within the neighbourhood. It's not for nothing that we say: for and through the neighbourhood. We work together with entrepreneurs, social organizations, residents (initiatives) and others to continue to offer this service. Our volunteers are our ambassadors.
Do you want to help grow this social and sustainable initiative? Do you have a heart for the elderly and other residents who would like to go somewhere? Then quickly see which vacancies we have. You are most welcome!
