What we stand for
We want informal care to be widely accepted, appreciated and supported in Dutch society.
Informal caregivers find support in each other, in their immediate environment (private and work) and should be helped quickly and actively by a helpful government in their important role as a new cornerstone of the care system.
The Mantelzorgelijk foundation works towards an equal role and position of volunteer care in the participation society of the Netherlands. Based on our experience and expertise, we promote the interests of informal caregivers to all parties involved, with the needs and welfare of both the informal caregiver and the care recipient in mind.
