WE ARE WELCOME APP

Our mission

Getting as many newcomers as possible to feel at home in the Netherlands

Welcome app Netherlands

Did you know 50% of newcomers in the Netherlands feel lonely, and only 25% have jobs? We don’t just feel this could be better, it simply has to. Our two cents? Let’s join forces with all the amazing initiatives in the Netherlands to build a central platform. A single place where newcomers can meet locals, access events in their area, ask all their questions, and start feeling at home. Together, we’re offering newcomers a warm welcome and we’re enriching Dutch society. Help us build by downloading the app!

#PEOPLEOFWELCOME

There would be no Welcome app without our community of newcomers. Together, we’re developing our platform so we’ll be able to help even more newcomers in the future. You’ll find all the #peopleofwelcome stories on our blog.
