The Diaconaal Platform Zwolle (DPZ) is a network of almost all churches in the city. The people who are concerned in the DPZ are mostly volunteers. The main purposes are to improve the situation of people in the city who have problems and to link people in a good situation with people who have problems of different kinds.

The churches in the DPZ organize language lessons, cultural activities, meetinggroups and equipment on several fronts. The DPZ is filling the gaps in the education and integration of refugees as good as possible and develops new methods to do this.
