Become a UKG Host Family

Our host families provide a very important service to our students. As well as representing UKG, they play a large part in ensuring the students have an enjoyable time in the UK, in a safe and supportive environment.

UKG have a number of host families with whom we place our students when schools are closed for half terms and exeat weekends, or long-term stays for day students. We match our host families and students as closely as possible in terms of the student’s requirements and interests.

We are always looking for new comfortable and safe homestays all around the UK, so if you would like to join us as a host family, please complete the form below.
