Social projects

In addition to lending individual assistance the RDO Bailiwick of Utrecht also supports projects where a larger group of those in need reap the benefit. Such projects are often given a one-off contribution or support is provided for a specifically agreed period. Only such means are given that directly benefit the target group, those in need. No contributions are given for personnel or for running costs. With such projects the RDO often cooperates with other charities and municipal agencies.

Examples of supported projects

  • Hospices
  • Reception centres for homeless young people
  • Food banks
  • Affordable eateries for greater social cohesion in a neighbourhood
  • Contribution to local bureaus of Stichting Leergeld
  • Re-socialisation projects

Examples of projects and more information on how to submit a project is only available in Dutch.

Requests for financial support of a project should be submitted in writing. They must be accompanied by a good plan of approach, including the target group and time frame and a budget with financial planning.
