Reading FC are looking for local households for our youngsters living away from home...Reading FC are looking for local households interested in hosting young Academy players living away from home.
Whether it’s just one night or a full season, please get in touch if you can accommodate one of our young players; we would love to hear from you. Plenty of our aspiring Academy youngsters have gone on to play first-team football for Reading and the help of host families cannot be understated in helping them on that journey.
Distance and Travel
Younger players will need to be based close to The Forest School, Winnersh. Older players can be located anywhere within Reading and the surrounding area. All travel requirements will be managed by the Club.
Payment and Expenses
Payment will be made on a weekly basis, this includes a provision for healthy meals and laundry. The Club recognises the commitment of every household in providing a warm and safe environment and in return will offer full support and guidance at all times.
All members of the household, aged 16 years and above, will be required to apply for an online Enhanced DBS check. This will be managed by the Club’s Lead Disclosure Officer. Please note players will only be placed with host families subject to satisfactory clearance.
If you think you can help, or require more information, please contact David Day on 0118 907 2246 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
