Do you have a spare room?
Are you willing to become an Edugo Guardian
host family?

We are always looking for new host families around the UK, and we welcome suitable candidates to join our Edugo Guardian team.

Our students, whose age range from 11 to 18 years, are currently enrolled in prestigious British boarding schools. When schools are closed for half terms, exeat weekends (2–3 nights of short leave), or school holidays, students need a safe and welcoming place to stay.


To become an Edugo Guardian host family, you must obtain two letters of recommendation, undergo an enhanced DBS check, and have regular safeguarding training.


We are AEGIS Gold certified. This means that we have passed AEGIS' rigorous audit process for student care and safe homestay host family employment. We will support you while you work with us as a host family.

Responsibilities of our host families

  • Provide meals and accommodation.​

  • Provide a separate room that is not shared with the host family.

  • Provide clean bedding, including pillow, duvet, and bed sheet.

  • Provide communal space to share within the family.

  • Provide a suitable work area to include a desk and chair.

  • Provide suitable storage where students can keep clothes.  

  • Collect students from school or other locations as agreed.

  • Provide a safe and secure environment whilst in the home.

  • Arrange a local NHS doctor for students when they are sick. Should an emergency occur,  immediately contact Edugo Guardian.

  • Help students adapt well to homestay families and inform students about British culture and various UK customs and UK lifestyle.

To become an Edugo Guardian host family, the following is required:​

  • An enhanced DBS check for all members of the household over the age of 16.

  • An annual gas safety certificate issued by a registered gas safety engineer.
