Stoke City Football Club is currently looking for Host Families to accommodate young players between 13-23 years of age. This is a rewarding opportunity to be involved in the development and support of young Stoke City players.
At this time the Club is specifically looking for families to accommodate players for short term placements. These placements may be on a regular basis or as holiday cover for other host families.
Homes need to be located within a three mile radius of the Clayton Wood Training Ground.
Hosts are encouraged to include young players in family life and young players are expected to respect their host family’s way of life. Both hosts and young players are given guidelines explaining what is expected of them.
All our host families are regularly visited and inspected by the Academy Safeguarding Officer, and are required to provide satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check.
In return the Club will provide the host family with a subsidy as well as the necessary training to ensure you understand the needs of an elite athlete.
The Club is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding, 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 finding out more information or applying to be considered as a host family then please contact Steph Wakelin, Academy Safeguarding & Welfare Officer via email [email protected]
