A sheltered housing initiative (Dutch: initiatief van beschut wonen/IBW) is intended for adults and elderly people with severe, prolonged mental problems. They can live in a residential unit of the sheltered housing initiative itself or in some other (personal) residential unit. There the IBW offers them ‘recovery support’.

You can find additional information on the sheltered housing initiatives ((opens in new window)) on the Agency for Care and Health website.
