The Masters® Story

When and Why?

It all began in 2009, when The Masters® began to help those who are “weaker” in our community.

The Masters® Wijkhuis

The “Wijkhuis” or “neighbourhood house” is what we call the freely accessible part of the home, where neighbourhood residents can eat, have meetings and make presentations. Residents work in the home so that they can learn on the job, this experience will help them to live and work independently in the future.

The Masters® Services & Care

Is an entrepreneurial cooperative which works within the neighbourhood to get care and help closer to home and make it possible for all local residents to have access to what is an easily recognised, reachable and always accessible service point.

The system functions by integrated collaboration between healthcare services, local social groups and individual supporters of the service. Resulting in an effective and efficient care system to a localised area.

There are currently two Masters Service & Care points, by the end of 2018 we aim to have nine fully functional and in operation.

The Masters® Community Network

Where do you find the best ideas, the most creative, effective or efficient solutions to social issues? Which projects are in progress around the world? How do you find what the best practice is? Where are they? How do you get in touch with them? These are questions we have been asking ourselves for years.

The Masters® are connecting and uniting people, organisations and governments so that we can learn, share ideas and work together. This way we will learn, develop and change together. Advances in technology means the world is getting smaller.

By using "social media" we are now able to reach and connect with the entire world. The Masters® is building a network of existing and emerging initiatives that add value to society or otherwise are of value to the betterment of the community.

Are you interested? Or do you belong to an initiative or organisation that wants to acquire or share knowledge, expertise or ideas? If so, please contact The Masters® and participate in "The Masters Community".
