As a buddy it is your job to help a residence permit holder find his/her way around The Hague. You will be a valuable social contact in this respect, showing the permit holder where to go in his/her neighbourhood, accompany him/her to community centres and/or sport clubs, undertake fun activities together and be a sympathetic ear if required.
- As a buddy you help the permit holder engage in various (social) activities like getting to know the neighbourhood, planning fun activities or just eating together. Each buddy makes arrangements with the permit holder in this regard.
- You communicate as much as possible in Dutch with the permit holder so as to increase his/her language competency as quickly as possible.
NB The duties of a buddy do NOT include contact with official authorities, like the municipality, Immigration and Naturalisation Services, school or helping with administrative matters. ‘VluchtelingenWerk’ takes care of that.
