Inclusion of neighborhoods in Enschede

Arie Fokkink

Andrei is a 23-year-old boy and is bound by a wheelchair due to multiple disabilities. He would like people like him (limited, 18-65 years) to be able to live inclusive in a neighborhood. And he would love to live in a neighborhood where it is 'normal' to be part of that neighborhood.

How inclusive are the housing functions in the neighborhoods of Enschede? To what extent is there room for an inclusive form of living?

Over this one challenge

Arie Fokkink

The first question is how inclusive are the neighborhoods in Enschede, and how inclusive are the residential functions in these neighborhoods? Can an inclusive form of living (for which the starting program of requirements is available) find a place in the neighborhood?

This issue is presented to second-year Saxion students of HBO Nursing study routes Health and Technology (G&T) and HBO-V as a project, with a duration of 20 weeks.

The ultimate goal of this project is to offer the physically handicapped a tailor-made living environment. To this end, suitable residential locations must be developed, but we want to make the neighborhoods in Enschede around those residential locations more inclusive.


As a follow-up to this challenge, the challenge will be presented again in the third quartile. Experiences from the previous challenges have taught us that the question “Whether a residential form can be set up in Lonneker, Boekelo and the inner ring area, following the example of the beautiful living house. , Did not come across clearly. That is why more emphasis will be placed on this in the future. Only when the question is really understood is it possible to deliver the best work to the client.
