+ Do you need to know Dutch

Yes. For now, our group of volunteers is not yet so extensive that we can guarantee that there will always be someone who speaks English, French or other languages.

+ Who may participate in the activities?

At the information sessions, all interested parties are welcome. However, some other activities are intended for a specific target group, e.g. a roundtable discussion for parents of obese children, or a yoga session only for obese or overweight people. When an activity is not open to all, this is indicated in the calendar.

+ Are all activities free of charge?

Yes. Both the info sessions and the other activities are free. If you have registered for an activity with a limited number of places, we do expect you to come. Signing up is a commitment, even if you don’t have to pay for the activity.

+ Does Infobees help you lose weight?

The Infobees volunteers are not coaches who start a weight-loss programme with you. They do not take over the role of a dietician, doctor, exercise coach, etc. However, they can refer you to a professional if you wish.

Of course, the support of peers and the feeling of no longer being alone can sometimes make you succeed in changing certain habits that have a negative impact on your weight. This is then a good thing, but this is not something we can guarantee.

+ Do the volunteers have professional secrecy?

No. The volunteers are not licensed healthcare providers and therefore do not have professional secrecy. They do, however, have a duty of discretion. This means that they will never pass on what you tell them to other Infobees visitors, nor to people outside the organisation. They may pass on what they learn in conversations to other Infobees staff members, but only if this is necessary to help the person in question further.
