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 60 different schools.
Build a high standard long lasting relationship with us.
HOMESTAY FAMILY COMMITMENTSOur Homestay families are dedicated to providing a home away from home for their student. We carefully match all of our students backgrounds, 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 homestay families are personally visited, approved by parents, are DBS checked and live within a 1 hour radius of the school.
CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTSettling into a new environment can be even more difficult when those around you do not understand your culture. Our Homestay families are thoroughly supported through their time with us, and have an 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 homestay 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 homestay family expenses
These services are available for the duration of the guardianship. Any balance that remains at the end of the year is 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 interests of the student and their own family.
