As a co-signatory of the Covenant Amsterdam works for everyone, we know how important it is that people participate in society and that work and education play a key role in this. But we also know that too many people are still on the sidelines because they do not yet have a good command of the Dutch language and culture.

With this Werkmarkt we want to Amsterdamhelp people who have difficulty participating in society. Due to their language delay, non-native speakers regularly lack knowledge and self-confidence to find suitable work. Foreign speakers indicate that they would like to work, but that they have difficulty finding suitable vacancies.

However, social participation in the form of work or another form of daytime activity is important because it improves people's health experience and well-being and because it contributes to social cohesion and the quality of life of people.
