  • Family friends can be hosts – with the added security of being covered by our insurance policy.

  • Emphasis is placed on matching those with shared interests.
  • Training is provided and Interchange support and assistance are always available.
  • A small reimbursement is given to hosts annually to assist with any extra costs incurred.
  • A Crimcheck, Working with Children and reference checks are completed prior to hosting.
