Introduction
I am interested in the phenomenon of non-take-up of social support. Why do potential welfare recipients not take-up social support services, even if sufficient services are available? What are the problems and barriers they encounter in their daily lives, which inhibit their help-seeking process? In my research, I adopt an integrative theoretical approach. I apply relevant knowledge and insights from different academic disciplines, including social-psychology, sociology, behavioral economics, political science and public administration, to gain a better understanding of this social phenomenon. Results of my research are also relevant for (policy) practitioners who work in and around the world of social service delivery.

This phenomenon of non-take-up of social support is still underexplored, and our theoretical understanding of it is highly fragmented. Based on psychological, socio-epidemiological, socio-cultural,...

Informele hulp van familie, vrienden, buren of vrijwilligers vormt een belangrijke steunpilaar bij de uitvoering van dienstverlening binnen het sociaal domein in Nederlandse gemeenten. Toch blijkt in de praktijk dat veel hulpbehoevenden hier niet om vragen, zelfs wanneer het hulpaanbod voldoende is. Onze kennis over deze zogenoemde ‘vraagverlegenhe...

Vraagverlegenheid voor informele hulp: wat weten we en wat kunnen we eraan doen? Gemeenten in Nederland doen in toenemende mate een beroep op mensen om hun sociale netwerk (meer) te activeren om in bepaalde zorgbehoeften te voldoen. Mensen moeten zelf actief op zoek gaan naar die informele hulp, binnen hun familie, vriendenkring, bij buren en vrijw...

Het is niet altijd vanzelfsprekend dat mensen bij problemen of ongemakken hulp vragen aan vrienden, familie, buren of vrijwilligers. De vraag waarom dat zo is, is lastig te beantwoorden. De vraag hoe het makkelijker kan worden gemaakt voor mensen om hulp te (durven) vragen is eveneens lastig te beantwoorden. Er is namelijk nog relatief weinig beken...

Therefore, the aim of this project is to improve our theoretical and empirical understanding of this important topic, as well as providing practical (policy) advice about reducing potential barriers for the utilization of social services.
