Host Families Recruitment
Our hosts really care about your children.
All host families enjoy watching the children that they care for grow into young adults, often attending university graduation ceremonies and weddings in the years ahead.
You will generally be looking after a child who will be attending a boarding school in the UK and whose parents are based abroad. It may just be for a leave out or exeat weekend, a half term holiday week or in some cases for a longer period of time. Whatever the duration of stay it is really important that you welcome the child into your home and make them feel part of your family. They want to feel that they have a home from home, in a happy, caring and safe environment.
Whilst a child is in your care you have full accountability for their wellbeing and safety. You must take day to day responsibility for the child and care for them as a caring parent would.
If you would like to apply to become a host, please complete our Host Family Information Form and send this back to us either by post or email.
We will then review this form and make an appointment to come and meet you in your home, where we will conduct an interview with you and other family members and view the proposed accommodation where the child would stay.
All members of the family over the age of 16 who live at the accommodation will need to undergo an enhanced DBS check; this will be arranged and paid for by College Guardians.
Please contact us for further information.
