The scheme is based around a directory where members advertise what they want and what they have to offer. Directory entries include the person's telephone number, so that other members can contact them directly. The HempLETS Directory is updated every month, and members are free to change their entries at any time.
Some examples of services offered are: decorating, gardening, alternative therapies, pet/house/baby sitting, computer services/tuition, DIY and music lessons. Members also sell goods, many of which are home-made or home-grown.
