Integration is for newcomers that are coming to the Netherlands for a longer period of time. The aim of integration is to ensure that people can take part in Dutch society.

Integration through Werkplein

Do you live in Etten-Leur, Halderberge, Moerdijk, Roosendaal, Rucphen or Zundert? Then Werkplein will help you with your integration. Werkplein fullfills these taskes on behalf of your municipality.

Participating in the Netherlands

Learning Dutch is part of the integration process. You will also get to know your place of residence. If you don't have a job, you will receive help to find (paid) work.

Compulsory or voluntary integration

Are you coming to the Netherlands from another continent? Then there is a good chance that you have an obligation to integrate. You can also integrate on a voluntary basis. This means that there is no obligation but you yourself want to do this.
