Is helpmatching.com really free?
Yes. We are a bunch of parents in Brussels who created this site for people to help each other. As X-pats in Brussels, we had nowhere to find help with basic domestic services like babysitting. With this site, we try to help to establish the contacts for free. The actual domestic service in itself may not be free though.
What about privacy?
All your contact details are confidential and we will not share it with anyone. Moreover, only members can contact you using the site. Your e-mail address is never exposed.
How can I join?
If you have a Facebook account, the easiest way is to press the f-connect (Facebook connect) button. helpmatching.com will in this way take your profile photo, name and address from Facebook to facilitate the registration process. If you do not have a Facebook account, or just do not want to use the Facebook connect option, press the join button and fill in the necessary details in the join-form
Can I remove my account?
No problem, you just go to "unregister" and confirm that you remove it. We would, of course, appreciate feedback if you are not satisfied with our service though.
How will you promote the site?
As x-pats in Brussels, we see Belgium as our home market and we promote the site through different x-pat channels. But please spread the word!
