UK Guardianship

A guardian becomes your personal UK representative once your child is in their care. They will act on your behalf to make sure that your child is happy, healthy and safe whilst studying in the UK. They are able to authorise medical treatment and other practical needs that your child may have, ensuring that their welfare is attended to in all situations.

What a Guardian does

All clients and host families of Edinburgh Guardian Angels are vetted, have necessary police checks, and are registered with the appropriate bodies where applicable (e.g. The Care Inspectorate). Children will be placed with caring families during holidays and treated like a member of the Masters family whilst residing in Scotland.
