From 1 April 2021, buurtteams will be set up in every district in Amsterdam. You can drop by to visit your buurtteam or make an appointment. You can also call or send an email to make an appointment at your home or on location. Each buurtteam includes several care workers with specialist knowledge. Peer advisors are also part of the buurtteam: people who have a lot of personal experience in the field of care and support.

Buurtteam employees support you when you need it. For example, so that you can live in your own home for as long as possible when you are of elderly age. Or if you are struggling to make ends meet. But also if you want to have more social contact. The buurtteam will see what you need and who can help, so that you can get on with your life.

You can go to a buurtteam near you if you have questions about:

  • Financial issues
  • Housing
  • Care
  • Physical health
  • Mental health
  • Work
  • Safety
