Wanted: volunteers to keep the meeting space open in Wilsele-dorp neighbourhood centre

Buurtcentrum Wilsele Dorp
In Wilsele-Dorp, volunteers and community workers are putting their weight behind the operation of the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood centre is a meeting place where locals read the newspaper, use the computers or enjoy a free cup of coffee in excellent company. Those who wish to do so can enjoy a freshly prepared snack or take part in one of the many activities on offer. What’s more, you can do all of these things either for free or at a nice low price. 

The neighbourhood centre offers a wide range of low-threshold meetings, activities, training courses, assistance, information provision and policy work, with particular attention for vulnerable local residents.
