Edinburgh Guardian Angels- Review/opinion of a parent

Edinburgh Guardian Angels (hereinafter “EGA”) has been providing guardianship services for my son since he started at boarding school in April 2016.

From the first contact with Mrs Masters I was aware of the professionality, attention to detail and competence of the organisation.

The mechanics – e.g. travel arrangements are efficiently dealt with and problems that crop up rapidly and firmly dealt with.

EGA has a good network of host families and my son appears to be happy with them, although inevitably he has some he prefers more than others.
EGA provided major support to our son - and indeed to myself at a difficult time in our lives and continues to do so.

I would not have the slightest hesitation in recommending EGA to any other parents. As Mrs Masters is fluent in German this recommendation also applies to pupils coming from Germany.

Dear Agnes,
talk about my experience with you is very easy as everything went very well-to -do. You have plan everything for us!
My son Raphael who is now twenty years spent the year of his 16 years in Loretto college . We are French but we live in the Indian Ocean which makes complicated exchanges. Agnes Masters organized everything for us the welcome, the relationship with the college, the host families always very good.
It is for these reasons that we chose to ask for  Agnes help again when our youngest sons, Mathias and Florentin (twins) aged 16. they are in  Longridge college (we found thanks to Agnes) .
Our sons are delighted as she listens to children and worried or them another very important point for me is that we often have news by mail. A very good job Agnes!! nothing to say more!
I could speak about a lot of more: your welcome, your gifts, the hosts family always so nice, time in your house with your husband...Raphael have very good memories about!
Sorry for my English hope you understand...

Dear Agnes,

we are really grateful for the four months you and the host family took care of our daughter Alessandra whilst at Kilgraston. She has enjoyed her time in Scotland and has grown in so many ways due to the experiences she has made.
Having you as her guardian made her feel very comfortable and safe. We were always at ease about Alessandra, were informed regularly and always felt that you are very passionate about your work.

Thank you so much!!! We will always recommend you and your service and hope to keep in touch with you.
Alessandra is definitely looking forward to visiting you in Summer!

Warmest regards,

I am so happy that I had Agnes as my Guardian. I could call her every time there for me when I needed help. She tries hard to know what I needed and was a warmhearted guardian for me.
I will miss that going to dinner and to make jokes with her. She gave me an wonderful host family for the holidays and phoned me often to ask if every thing was okay. I will never miss the time that I have spent with her! She is a wonderful guardian!

Agnes its TW, I'm about fly off.  I feel horrible that I haven't seen you before I leave, I had so much troubles to sort out in London and thought I would have time to visit you before I leave.  BUT you are my Scottish mother and can't describe how much I appreciate your presence and I'm the luckiest person ever as I had you as my guardian.  I have gained so much care and love from you and you helped me to settle in UK more than anyone.  I have planned to come back after Christmas I will visit you first thing.  I feel guilty for not seeing you.  You are still young and energetic.
