Host families wanted for apprentices

The Football Club is looking for local families to offer accommodation for our apprentices.

10 November 2023

Accommodation required from local families for our apprentices.

Gillingham FC are looking to recruit Host Families who can provide a home away from home to our young players, aged 16 to 18.

Could you provide a supportive, safe, and caring ‘home-from-home’ environment for our academy players who are away from home whilst training at Gillingham FC?

We are looking for host-families to provide live-in accommodation for our academy players, aged 16-18, local to Priestfield Stadium to undertake their two-year football scholarship.

The host family provider will help fulfil the club’s duty of care to our young people by ensuring a safe, supportive, and nurturing home.

There would be a requirement that accommodation is offered until May 2024.

The host family will be supported by Gillingham FC and will maintain consistent liaison with the Player Care Manager and Academy DSO.




Gillingham Football Club are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk.

The successful candidate may be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS). The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining a post, as all cases are mediated individually according to the nature of the role and the information provided.

More information can be found in the below document.
