We are currently seeking host family providers, couples or singles, to support our elite young players who need to live away from home to undertake their football training at our club.

Host families would be required to provide homely accommodation throughout the season.  The actual accommodation needed is a double bedroom with WIFI connection.  Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable.

Our placements vary from short-term to long term, with some specialist accommodation, offering short notice limited accommodation for trialists and their families, or holiday cover for other host families.

Host families would be required to guide our young players by teaching them basic independent living skills such as washing, cooking cleaning after themselves alongside self care skills, for example, how to book medical appointments.  Young players are also paid a ‘wage’ so may also require guidance on saving and budgeting especially for items such as mobile phone credit.  The host family will be required to provide some meals (dependent upon the Academy schedule) in line with the basic nutrition guide provided by the Academy.

Hosts are encouraged to include young players in family life, and scholars are expected to respect their host family’s way of life in return for being accepted as a family member. 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. Additionally, they formally undertake to protect and care for the young players in their charge.

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.
