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 RichardHopwood@wealdstonefc.com
