MEET OUR HOSTS
Belgravia works alongside host families from all over Britain to provide children with a safe, welcoming and supportive network during their time in the UK. Each host undergoes rigorous checks to ensure that they can provide the best care for every child. Many of our hosts also offer to personally collect students from school, or return them once their stay has come to an end.
We create profiles for each host to showcase the homes, lifestyles and personalities of our hosts, to help you choose the best match for your child. We strive to make each child's experience with a host memorable; that's why we coordinate with each host to help organise excursions to special events, visits and parents' evenings.
Below you can find information about some of our hosts from different regions of Britain.
