Guardians UK have a wide choice of Host Families in the Southwest, Cheltenham, Bristol, Bath and London for half terms, exeats and longer holidays if necessary. Our Introductory Host Family booklet shows some of our host families.
All our host families are carefully chosen by Guardians UK and their homes are visited. Each member of the family over 16 years of age are Police checked and references are taken.
We match our students to suitable families, where they will be well cared for, supervised, and included in family life. Students will be encouraged to speak English during their stay. We try to place the student in the same host family whenever possible to make them feel more at home.
We organise transport for our students to and from the school to the host family, to ensure they are safe at all times. All our drivers are Police checked and are fully insured to carry students.
We also operate a 24-hour emergency mobile telephone, so that the student may contact us at any time if they have a problem or are worried about anything, but also to offer support to the host families.
We believe staying with a host family should be an enjoyable experience.
