In the Netherlands, one in five households has high-risk or problematic debt. The debt burden is on average € 40,000 spread across fourteen different creditors. The chance of someone ending up with a hard to resolve debt burden is a combination of factors. However, it does appear that having a disorganised administration, a lack of proper financial upbringing and low literacy increase the risk of debt.

Helping by doing

Social organizations often depend on volunteers in order to offer 'something extra'. a.s.r. foundation aims to inspire as many colleagues as possible to volunteer. a.s.r. organises Social Team Activities (STA's) in which colleagues assist social organizations by physically rolling up their sleeves, or help with business-oriented Fresh Looks. Moreover, a.s.r. supports individual colleagues who perform voluntary work in their private environment with a financial contribution.
