Do you have a spare room, and

are you willing to become an Edugo Guardian host family?

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

The age range of our students is from 11 to 18 years old, and they 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 comfortable 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 trainings.


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 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 and clean bedding.


  •   Provide pillow, duvet, and bed sheet.


  •   Provide communal space to share within the family.


  •   Provide a desk, a chair, place where students can keep clothes.  


  •   Pick up students at the school or where students are located (fuel cost £ 0.5 / mile).


  •   Care for students safe while students are staying in their homestay families.


  •   Arrange a local NHS doctor for students when they are sick. Tell a doctor if an emergency occurs and immediately contact Edugo Guardian.


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

To become an Edugo Guardian host family, the following are requested:

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

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

  • two references whom you have known for more than two years; both are not related to you, and one of them is professional.
