About Us

Who we are: We’re a community of people who like to travel and combine it with a purpose. To us travel is about learning, sharing and growing. That’s why we created HelpStay so everyone can travel with a purpose. We welcome any helper or any host from any country, with no barriers to age or gender.

What we do: We make it super easy, safe and affordable to travel and volunteer abroad. We do it by providing an online trusted, vetted & reviewed community where Helpers can connect with Hosts to find a safe & secure stay, and of course a worthwhile volunteering experience abroad.

Why join: As a member we’ve got your back. We look out for each other, we communicate and keep each other in the know about projects that are must dos and ones that are a big no-no. Not only can you contact hosts through our safe secure platform, you too can message, connect and hook up with likeminded travellers. Did we mention that you’ll be part of?

  • A community of the world’s most affordable volunteering projects – starting at FREE.
  • Fees (i.e. where charged) are paid directly to host families and projects – no middlemen. Think about it - Your volunteering Euro is spent directly in the local community. That means by simply being there you’re boosting the local economy.
  • We’re growing. We’re in 60+ countries, 160+ projects with over 2,000 happy volunteer helpers.
