Our social partnerships

In the spotlight

Alliantie Digitaal Samenleven (Digital Society Alliance)/ Number Five Foundation

A public-private partnership the aim of which is to increase digital skills in the Netherlands. It was set up in 2019 in collaboration with Beeld & Geluid (Sound & Vision), ECP/Veiliginternetten, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and the Number Five Foundation. The alliance has four working groups: family, senior citizens, young adults and people in work. We are active in the working group for families and senior citizens.

National Foundation for the Elderly (Nationaal Ouderenfonds)

This Foundation focuses on combating loneliness by providing activities that enable senior citizens to come together and keep in touch with one another. Our partnership with the Foundation focuses on our Welcome Online programme for senior citizens. The Foundation actively promotes this programme among its members and organises Welcome Online group sessions. They also match volunteers with senior citizens as a means of providing individual support and set up a Welcome Online Helpdesk during the lockdown.


VHTO is a national expertise centre for gender diversity in the fields of science, technology and ICT. Every year, we organise a Girls’ Day together, during which about 150 to 200 girls follow various workshops at the offices of VodafoneZiggo in order to learn about our technical field of work. In 2021, this event took place online due to the coronavirus crisis.

Dutch Media Literacy Network (Netwerk Mediawijsheid)

The mission of the Dutch Media Literacy Network is to foster a society in which everyone is – or is on their way to becoming – media literate. The Network supports us with the development and distribution of our programmes in the area of digital skills.

NL Digital

We are a member of the Education working group. The members of this network work together to build the education and labour market of the future. The shared ambition is to increase digital knowledge and skills, as well as to reduce the shortage of IT talents in the labour market.

ECP | Platform for the Information Society (Platform voor de Informatie Samenleving)

An independent and neutral platform to exchange information about how to create a responsible digital society. ECP is a public-private partnership between the government, science, the business sector, educational and social organisations. As a member of ECP, we are active in the Digiskills programme. ECP was involved in the development of our programmes in the area of digital skills.

Online Child Abuse Expertise Centre (Expertisebureau Online Kindermisbruik)

VodafoneZiggo supports the Online Child Pornography Hotline of the Online Child Abuse Expertise Centre (Expertisebureau Online Kindermisbruik, EOKM), which combats and prevents the (online) sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children.


JINC believes that every child should have the same opportunities. That’s why the organisation helps children aged 8 to 16 to get a good start on the employment market. Children can become acquainted with different professions, discover what types of work suit their talents and learn how to apply for jobs. JINC is our partner for the Experience Days. They arrange for schools to visit our offices.

Coalitie Anders Reizen

Fifty large companies work together in the Anders Reizen (Travel Differently) coalition on a shared ambition: halving CO2 emissions from business travel by 2030 (compared to 2016). This concerns travelling to and from work and all trips for work, including air travel. We have laid down this promise in a ‘sustainable mobility pledge’, which every member signs.
