Two SCOOP Seniors together with a consortium of partners in the labor market region of Groningen and North-Drenthe receive ZonMw subsidy to help newcomers enter the Dutch northern job market

We would like to congratulate Liesbet Heyse and Nina Hansen, SCOOP Seniors, for receiving a subsidy amounting to almost €350,000 from ZonMw, the Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development! The aim of this project is to develop interventions to help newcomers with a residence permit to find appropriate and sustainable employment, in order to encourage their integration and minimize their dependency on benefits.

The project will be carried out in collaboration with Werk in Zicht (Pieter Nammensma), UWV (Jan Huygen), Divosa & Gemeente Groningen (Mario van Dijk), Stichting Lemat/Nieuwlander (Milka Yemane) and Kwartiermakers (Evert Sulman).
