We are currently seeking host family providers to support our young players who need to live away from home to undertake their football training at the club. Players range from 16 to 18 years of age.
Host families would be required to provide homely accommodation throughout the football season. Players would require their own bedroom. Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable.
Host families are encouraged to help and assist young players with basic independent living skills such as washing, cooking and cleaning for themselves. The host family will be required to provide meals (dependent upon the Academy schedule) in line with the basic nutrition guide/information provided by the Academy.
Hosts are encouraged to include young players in family life as much as the player feels comfortable. Both hosts and young players are given guidelines explaining what is expected of each of them. All our host families are regularly visited and inspected by us.
The football club is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding, promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any applicant wishing to be considered as a host family will need to demonstrate they are able to share this commitment.
As part of this commitment, Host Families are required to attend Safeguarding Training every three years. Host family members and any other persons over the age of 16 who reside at the address are legally required to complete enhanced DBS checks.
