Host Families Wanted
PLYMOUTH Argyle Football Club is on the lookout for family homes that could accommodate our young players aged between 16-18.
We are looking to applicants who can provide a good quality, safe “home from home”, where our young players can feel comfortable and at home outside of their training hours.
The role will require providing residential accommodation each week during the football season and providing a nutritious evening meal, occasional lunches and some laundry facilities.
We are keen to hear from anyone who feels they will be able to offer a welcoming environment to our young players, particularly those living close to the club’s Home Park stadium in the Stoke, Peverell and Mutley areas of Plymouth.
Plymouth Argyle is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Anyone wishing to be considered as a host family will need to demonstrate they are able to share this commitment.
Applicants will be required to undergo a full assessment with our club staff, including a home inspection and satisfactory enhanced DBS criminal record check, before a decision can be made as to suitability.
Those intending to host children under the age of 16 will also be required to work within the requirements of private fostering regulations.
A fee is payable to the host family for the duration of the placement.
If you think you are someone who can work with the club to care for these players and provide the best chance for our young footballers of the future, then please get in touch.
