What is Welcome app?

Imagine: you’re trying to build a new life in a foreign country – from scratch. Where do you start? Information may not be easily accessible and a support network takes time to build. Language may be an obstacle. Many newcomers to the Netherlands face this challenge, and We are here to make things easier. We work every day to make relevant information, activities, services and local organizations easily accessible in one place: Welcome app. This way, we support newcomers to navigate their way in the Netherlands. We do this by working together with many different parties: municipalities, companies and other (social) organizations.

Welcome app is currently working on behalf of four municipalities: Almere, Dordrecht, Leiden and Venlo. The ambition is to grow to 50 Dutch municipalities in the coming three years by building a sustainable model and scaling our impact. We also have international ambitions. Our dynamic and diverse team consists of ambitious professionals who are committed to a more inclusive world.
