Job tasks and duties

Buurttaxi Selwerd is a project originating from Wijkbedrijf Selwerd, in cooperation with Zinn and the municipality of Groningen.
Buurttaxi Selwerd is committed to providing low-threshold transport for seniors and those in need of assistance. By doing so, we hope to encourage people who are currently very limited in mobility to get out more often and maintain their social contacts. This is extremely important for this target group and is now often difficult.
