Short for "help exchange", this website puts willing volunteers in touch with people or businesses who need help with their farms, vineyards, ranches, hostels or sailing boats throughout Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Europe. After signing up for premier membership, which costs €20 (£18) for two years, volunteers can search the current vacancies noticeboard and reviews and sign up for work, usually unpaid but in exchange for free board and lodging. Free membership gives access to basic information about some vacancies.
