From your child’s perspective, a guardian will play many different roles.
They will be a familiar voice at the end of a phone, and a familiar face at weekends and in holidays. They will be someone who can listen, help and support at all times of the day or night.
Your child’s guardian will quickly seem like any other family friend: someone who would do anything to help when their parents were away. Your child will know their guardian to be that person who can help fix those little problems which sometimes arise out of misunderstandings, or from cultural differences between home and the UK.
Your child will also feel comfortable going to them with their questions and concerns about school, play, work, home, relationships and everything else that goes through a child’s mind when they are far from home.
