Main aim of the charity

Main aim is to prevent loneliness for people with disabilties. And to make them feel part of the community/society. It is expected that every peer-buddy and buddy undertake something together every 2 or 3 weeks. For example, walk through park, cinema, theatre, playing games, watch a movie etc.

How the employee got involved and why

I started about 4 years ago. I think I can learn much from my buddy. He has a very positive way of approaching all sorts of things in life. He also often tells me how much I mean to him and this means so much to me. That I can make a difference for this one special person.

What work does the employee do for charity

I’m a peer-buddy for a person with a (physical/mental) disabilty. Every two weeks I take him out to go to the zoo or cinema, have lunch/diner, walk through the park, watch a movie, go to the theatre etc.
