What we do

Joint Projects has the network, expertise and resources to give your organization advice on accessibility.

Joint Projects has realised the first Changing Places Toilet in the Netherlands at Beekse Bergen. A Changing Places toilet is a reclining toilet facility with a high-low stretcher, high-low sink, high-low toilet and ceiling lift. People with severe disabilities need this facility to simply go to the toilet.

This wonderful facility contributes to our mission to make recreation accessible to all; fun for all! Through our extensive network and our Accessible Recreation community, we continuously bring the need for this facility to the attention of the recreation sector and municipalities. This facility enables some 100,000 visitors with disabilities to enjoy a day out or night out.

We are extremely proud to have opened the first location in the Netherlands and also recently realised the second Changing Places Toilet in a museum. This one will be officially opened soon. We are eager to support more leisure venues and municipalities!

Passionate and Professional

Last year I used the services of Karin and her company Joint Projects to accelerate the progress of an internal task force for studying and increasing the accessibility of our existing and new rides. Thanks to her inspiring working session and her professionalism in leadership we made a big step in improving and attention for accessibility of our ride systems.

I continued the professional and pleasant relationship by including her in further developments and in attending initiatives, like the “Digital Wake Up”, of the Community “Toegankelijke Recreatie”. Also in these sessions you can recognize the professional involvement of Karin in the efficient managed and well organized meetings.

As consequence Vekoma is happy to join the community and benefit further from Karin’s drive and commitment to get things done in general and specific to improve the accessibility in the leisure industry.

Skilled connector and organizer

I know Karin as someone with a pleasant tenacity on the subjects she stands for. Her sense of nuance and people knowledge, but also a structural approach and strategic view of things make her a skilled connector and organizer. Her heart and head are in balance, which means she is ideally suited to work on socially relevant topics.
