FAQ : Frequently Asked Questions

What do we do in a group? What happens when the facilitator is gone?
During the first few weeks, your group will meet with a facilitator. The facilitator will help you to set up a caring framework for listening and exchange between each member of the group. Little by little, the group will organise its own weekly meetings.
Can I choose my group and its members according to my profile or interests?
Initially, groups of 6 to 10 people are formed randomly, without selection. Experience has shown us that the diversity of the members is a factor of success, facilitating exchanges and mutual aid. However, in a second stage, you will have the opportunity to meet other co-researchers and to join or create your own group according to common interests.
Do I have to speak French or Dutch to participate in Cosearching?

We organise cosearching groups both in Dutch and in French. A minimum knowledge of one of this languages is necessary, but in case of difficulty, the group will be there to help you! If you speak English for example, we will try to integrate you in a group where at least one other cosearcher also speaks this language so that we can help you.

Am I obliged to attend all group meetings?
Your participation is voluntary. You are free to join a group or not and to continue the experience, but if you participate you commit yourself to be present as much as possible at all the meetings planned with the facilitator.
If I am not from Brussels, can I register for this activity?

You must be a resident of Brussels and registered with Actiris to be able to participate in our activities free of charge. If you are not in these conditions, contact us and we will look for a solution together.

Does the Covid-19 health crisis prevent the smooth running of Cosearching?
Since the beginning of the crisis, we have been proposing to co-researchers to meet by videoconference. We provide the necessary tools (Zoom) and help you to use them. Depending on the evolution of the situation, we can switch to face-to-face and/or online without any problem. If you do not have the necessary hardware, we will help you to find a solution.
