Swansea City Academy host families
12th November 2015
Swansea City is looking for family homes that could accommodate young Academy players who need to live away from home.
Most are apprentices while others will be on trial.
We are looking for homes able to accommodate 1 to 2 young players. Each will usually require their own rooms, daily access to a washing machine / tumble dryer together with breakfast and an evening meal.
Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable.
The host families we are looking for need to be situated within reasonable travelling distance of the academy base at Landore (next to the Liberty Stadium).
Our placements vary from short term of a few weeks to long term of two years.
Swansea City is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding and 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.
If you are interested in applying to provide a caring 'home from home', then please be aware that this position is subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check which can be undertaken by the club and that all those aged 16 and above, who are resident in the accommodation, will be expected to apply for an Enhanced DBS check immediately and then every three years thereafter.
All applicants will be required to undergo a full assessment with our club staff before consideration can be made as to suitability. Those intending to host children under the age of 16, will be required to work within the requirements of Private Fostering Regulations.
A monthly fee is payable to the Host Family for the duration of the placement.
If you live in one of the above areas and are interested in applying, please email:
