Support a family or young people with many concerns by walking with them for a while
Samen Op Oopopen connects volunteers with families and young people who can use support. These are families with stress due to problems in multiple areas of life. Often families who have fled or cannot cope well in our complex society. You can mean a lot to such a family by walking with them for a while and thinking along and acting with the parent (s) and children wherever needed.
In this way you strengthen the power of the family, expand their social network and help you to do what is needed, so that children have the opportunity to develop well.
Volunteers who fit well with the family or the younger come into the family weekly or every other week. The contact is friendly in nature and you think along at an equivalent level.
The professional coordinator can, as needed, use her expertise as a social worker. She monitors your boundaries and the family with you and if necessary is the bridge between professional organizations and you.
