UK GUARDIANSHIP

"Our UK Guardianship programme offers a total care package from day one of a student’s stay in the UK"

WHY DO I NEED A GUARDIAN?

The majority of UK boarding schools require all overseas pupils to have a UK-based guardian. A Guardian should be a responsible adult living in the UK who can be there in an emergency situation on behalf of parents. For those parents who do not have a family friend to act as guardian, then they have the opportunity of choosing a Guardianship Organisation such as UK Guardians to act in Loco Parentis for their child. This not only satisfies the Boarding School requirements but also the UKVI guidelines and keeps international students safe while they are not in school and are unaccompanied. Giving you the parent and the schools peace of mind.

WHAT WILL UK GUARDIANS DO FOR ME AND MY CHILD?

UK Guardians will ensure that all the needs of your child are met and offers parents peace of mind and security in the knowledge that there is always someone there to give a helping hand. Our UK Guardianship programme offers a total care package from day one of a student’s stay in the UK and throughout their study period. We have a “hold your hand” policy for all of our student meaning we are there for them any time of the night or day.

A TRUSTWORTHY SERVICE FROM AN EXPERIENCED TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS

UK Guardians was established in 2012 and has been dedicated to offering guardianship to international students ever since. Our staff are all experts in Child Protection and Customer Service to create the optimum service for parents and to provide the support and mentoring that young children studying in the UK require.

COMMITTED TO SAFEGUARDING YOUR CHILD

UK Guardians is fully accredited by AEGIS, the Association of Education Guardians for International Students since 2016 and is inspected regularly to ensure the continuation of high standards that we keep.

SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE HOST FAMILY ACCOMMODATION

From time to time, students may need to leave school unexpectedly, their flight may be cancelled leaving a gap once the school has closed, and they may need to leave school during some leave weekends (exeats) and half term holidays. UK Guardians can offer safe and secure accommodation with fully inspected and checked host families during these planned and unexpected events.

HALF TERM AND EASTER HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES

Not all students want to go to a host family and are looking for something more exciting with a group of other like-minded individuals. UK Guardians recognises that some students wish to have a different experience during the holidays so we can provide unique programmes in partnership with Education and Activity experts to provide wonderful half term and Easter holiday options for our students. This can include extra lessons, activities and excursions. More details on request.

AVAILABLE FOR EMERGENCIES OR WHENEVER YOU NEED US

Our established network of Local Coordinators and host families living locally to the schools combined with our emergency helpline manned 24/7 by our Head Office staff team means that our clients can be reassured that we will be there to help in an emergency on your behalf.
