Heumensoord Meet&Greet Nijmegen
For people from Heumensoord who would like to get to know people from Nijmegen and vice versa. Learn from each other's cultures and go do something fun together!

Meet and Greet

Residents of Nijmegen and residents of Heumensoord Emergency Shelter would like to meet each other. We match people based on their interests and what you would like to do together: go for a drink, cooking together, going for a walk, doing sports or sightseeing in Nijmegen.

Easy and accessible

Very important: all contact is equal and there is no obligation. You can meet one time or more. That is up to you. You can also meet different people if you like. We will also organize an occasional group meeting to exchange experiences. Everyone is welcome!

Frequently asked questions

  • Hoe does meet and greet work?
    You can register using this form. On it, you fill in the answers to a few questions, such as your name, date of birth, telephone number and possibly an e-mail address. We will also ask about your interests, what you would like to do and if there are any other things we should take into account. For example, if you have trouble walking or would rather not meet with a man or woman.
  • Who can participate?
    "Meet and Greet" is for the residents of Heumensoord Emergency Shelter and the people of Nijmegen. It is important that you are over 18 years old. Otherwise you cannot register. If you are younger and would like to join us, please send us an e-mail. Together we will see if we can come up with meetings that you can participate in.
  • When will I get a response?
    Is there a match? Great! You will receive an e-mail with more information! You will also receive a phone number and/or email address of someone you can meet up with. He/she also gets that from you. It is up to you what you want to do, we do not interfere. But if there are any questions or if you want to share experiences with us, please contact us.
  • Have you got tips for the meeting?
    1. Meeting someone you don't know can be quite exciting. From our own experience, we have the following tips for you: Meet in a place where you both feel comfortable. Do something that costs no or little money. This is so that people on a tight budget can also join in and not feel shy.
    2. And for people new to Holland: In Holland it is also very common if everyone pays for his/her own drink.
    3. You can ask anything. But also keep in mind that not everyone wants to tell you everything about their history. And you do not have to tell everything yourself. You can check whether it is okay if you ask personal questions.
    4. A basic principle of 'The Meeting' is equality. This means that we assume that you will do something together that you both enjoy. It is not a buddy project, where one person helps the other for a longer period of time. This is not to say that you cannot help each other. If you can do something for someone else: Definitely do it! But if you prefer to join a buddy project, that is also possible.
  • Who organises meet and greet?
    With a team of volunteers from Bindkracht10, we keep track of all the applications and look for a good match. If we need some extra information to make a match we will contact you. Furthermore, you will mainly have contact with your match. And we are here for suppor.
  • How do we handle your data?
    We only use your data for the Meet and Greet project and not for any other purposes. We keep your details for matching purposes and for as long as a match lasts. If you let us know you want to stop we will remove your details. You can read more about how we deal with personal data in our privacy policy (dutch).
