Host Families – What Happens Next

Once we receive your application we will:

  • Arrange a visit to you at home, where we will explain the requirements and reality of hosting a student, answer any questions you may have, and have a look at the student’s bedroom
  • Take up DBS checks on all members of the household over the age of 16, along with two references
  • Training will be provided, once all the checks have been completed
  • Placement of a Student – when a suitable student is found for you, we will provide you with their information and contact details so you can get to know them before they arrive in the UK
  • Arrival of the student – we will send you information regarding the students arrival and where to collect them
  • Ongoing Support – Alpha Guardians will be available 24/7 to support you and the student
