Work with us

The Guardian Family Network are a UK based guardianship company, with a guardian network that spans the whole of the UK providing support for our students, who attend over 45 different schools.

Build a high standard long lasting relationship with us.


Our Guardians are dedicated to providing a home away from home for their student. We carefully match all of our students background, interests and ages to that of their guardian family, giving them the best chance of stability and happiness while in the UK. All of our guardian families are personally visited, approved by parents, are DBS checked and live within a 1 hour radius of the school.


Settling into a new environment can be even more difficult when those around you do not understand your culture. Our Guardians are thoroughly supported through their time with us, and have appreciation of the cultures of the students they are welcoming into their homes. This mutual cultural development of not just the students but of the guardian families, allows UK families to enjoy and learn about perceptions, traditions and values of other countries.

Sending your child abroad to study can be difficult and we are here to help in any way we can.
Our services can include:

  • Managing funds on behalf of a parent whose first language may not be English

  • Producing Estimates for approval

  • Producing termly statements with accompanying paperwork

  • Monitor and report on guardian expenses

These services are available for the duration of the guardianship. Any balance that remain at the end of the year are returned to the parent.

The relationship we build with our agents is one of mutual trust.

We would like to provide a stable and secure service so you in turn can provide the highest standard of service to the students parents, as your clients. We wish to embark in a UK trusted partnership with each of our agents, jointly acting in the best interest of the student and their own family.
