Bureau MUTANT is active in early childhood care and education, and health care.
Since 1989 we have been developing methods and trainings for professionals, managers and users, we do practice-oriented research, take care of publications and advise institutions and authorities.
Handling diversity – as to ethnicity, social background, and multiple disciplines – holds a central position in our work.
We aim at a society in which justice, equity and respect for diversity are the starting point. We actually contribute to this by supporting professionals, management and users of institutions in the care and health sector and in education by means of developing methodologies, promoting expertise and advice.

• respect for diversity
• work at quality
• stimulating positive intercultural relations
• Strengthening the position of those groups in society that need it.
