Wealdstone Academy seeking host families

Wealdstone Football Club are seeking host families who can provide paid accommodation for our Academy players aged 16-18 years. The ideal host family provision will be able to offer our young players a stable, safe and comfortable family environment.

At Wealdstone Football Club, we pride ourselves on a nurturing environment and we want our players to fulfil their potential both on and off the pitch. The ideal host family will:

  • Be located within a reasonable distance of either the Piccadilly or Metropolitan Lines or other public transport allowing easy access to Brunel University London.

  • You should offer good quality accommodation, preferably in a family environment.

  • Provide provision of a daily evening meal and occasional lunches, access to laundry facilities and WiFi.

  • Be required to offer accommodation to the academy player Monday to Thursday every week.

  • Have the willingness to accommodate players on a short-term basis throughout the season.

If you think you are the kind of family who can work with us to play a key role in the development of our young players, then we would like to hear from you. You will be subject to a full enhanced DBS check, references and must be committed to completing Safeguarding Training.

Hosting a player during their career at Wealdstone Football Club can be very rewarding, fun and educational for your own children and provides a valuable extra income for your family.

To arrange an informal discussion about being a host family, the application process and rates of remuneration, please contact our Head of Safeguarding Richard Hopwood via email at
