De Belevenis (The Experience)

The Experience

The Experience (known in Dutch as De Belevenis) is an event that is organized for people with multiple learning difficulties and elderly people suffering from dementia. 


The Vebego Foundation supports this initiative financially, but, as is the case with our initiatives, it is also possible to get actively involved yourself. You can do this by working as a volunteer for a day, during which you will accompany the visitors as they go round the tent and experience a day together.

On the morning of your day as a volunteer, we organize a CSR workshop where you are introduced to Vebego’s CSR vision and given information on the background to The Experience, what you can expect and what will be expected of you.

Our goal
We aim to make a contribution on 6 days with volunteers from our Vebego companies. During the Experience event in Groningen in the spring of 2011 we had 24 volunteers. We are aiming to recruit 50 employees as volunteers for the Experience event taking place in Arnhem this autumn.

Get involved! This autumn in Arnhem

This autumn The Experience is coming to Arnhem from 19 September to 3 November. The tent will be erected in the grounds of SIZA Dorpgroep and will offer people with multiple disabilities and elderly people suffering from dementia a fantastic day full of different experiences.

Would you like to take part as a Vebego volunteer, or do so together with your colleagues or clients? Well, you can! Register using the form below and indicate which day you will be able to attend. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Cappers.

She is our project manager for The Experience.
