Oxford Guardians (OGs) is a small company set up in 2010 to support the needs of children and young people studying in the UK in the specific areas of welfare, education and personal development. Our children and young people are aged between 10-20 years old and study in boarding schools, independent day colleges and universities.
Our purpose is to look after our children and young people during their studies so they can make the most of their time here in the UK. For this reason, we have local guardians who regularly visit and who also keep in touch with house parents, homestays and academic staff. In this way we hope to understand the needs of our children and young people and to support them. Our local guardians are often parents and teachers or care providers, with a lot of experience in looking after international students. Our homestay families are caring, kind and welcoming, and they offer a safe and secure environment where our young people can stay.
