Do you want to be a host family for an International Student and make a real difference?

Bright World Guardianships Ltd takes care of international children and young people in UK boarding schools. 

“Bright World works in partnership with Child Protection specialists, Travel Safe and holds a bronze award to show full commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Bright World expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment”.

The company follows Safer Recruitment practices to protect children and young people at risk of harm. Host family applicants must be 25 years and over and be suitable to work with children. 

All members of a host family aged 16 or over will be subject to an enhanced criminal records check and required to produce original forms and certificates of identification. Criminal records checks may be undertaken for any applicant who has been abroad for more than 3 months in the country/countries where the applicant has travelled.

Bright World Guardianships will contact your nominated referees to obtain references on your behalf.

We are looking for families in your area to host and care for our students during some term time weekends and half term holidays when boarding schools are closed.  Providing a home from home for students whose parents live far away and who can't go home on the short holidays makes a real difference to their experience in the UK.  We are always recruiting host families’ year round but particularly recruit over the summer in preparation for the new academic year starting from September onwards. 

Hosting an international boarding student during their short holidays can be very rewarding, fun and educational for your own children and provides a valuable extra income for your family.
