Extra information

A shift at the Gasthuis lasts five hours. We require each volunteer to work two shifts a week, including once every four weeks a shift on a weekend. We do this to provide some continuity to both our guests and our volunteers. Some guests stay longer than others. If a volunteer only wants to work on weekends, we also offer the possibility of doing one shift a week. At the moment, there is a particular need for volunteers who can work evenings or weekends.
