The city of Arnhem has facilitated the creation of this website.

Our purpose

We started with the goal to welcome refugees in Arnhem. To give them a usefull existence and to work on making Arnhem more beautiful with these new people. In the meanwhile a lot of the new comers live in Arnhem and life has a more sustained base. However, it is not easy to assimilate and participate in a fast European community. We would like to help with that. 

Arnhem for refugees is a citywide initiative. We work closely together in the neigborhoods. We take care of connections between the new Arnhemmers, inhabitants of Arnhem, organisations in Arnhem, companies and schools. 

At this moment we have three pillars: The buddyproject, the ‘Aan de slag’ project and the information market about fun activities in Arnhem.

Various activities are organised in Arnhem for the ‘new Arnhemmers”. These activities are organised by Arnhem for Refugees, but also by Rozet, the volunteercenter, Bazaar 54 and the integration house. On this website we will try as much as possible to mention all these beautiful initiatives within their correct time. If you have a nice activity for new Arnhemmers, then you can send an email to Arnhem for Refugees.
