  • Description


    We are a home educating family of 4, with 2 boys aged 9 and 12. We live in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead which is a lovely town just a short train ride (30mins) from Central London (Euston station). We have 4 bed house with a garden just 20 mins walk from the train station. The area is very green with a canal, river and lots of green spaces nearby. 5-10 minutes walk from the town centre.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will be an integral part of our family so you will have the opportunity to learn all about English life and family. We will be happy to take you places and help you to find and do anything that interests you. We would like this exchange to be mutually beneficial.

    Living near to London you have all that it has to offer on your doorstep, museums, culture, nightlife. Hemel Hempstead is also in the green belt of England though so you also have the beautiful countryside on your doorstep but are also 10 minutes walk from the town centre.

    We are looking for somebody to come and live with us for a minimum of 3 months but ideally longer. You would become a part of our family, eating with us, sharing in the duties of cleaning and tidying the house and hanging out with the children. Your main responsibility will be helping to keep the house clean, helping to keep the garden tidy and any other shared duties or tasks.

    It would be great for us to learn about your culture and language and you of course will get much opportunity to learn about ours as well. This will be a great opportunity for a cultural exchange and learning opportunity for us all.

    If you wanted to get involved in the boys learning teaching them about your country, customs, language etc... that would be great. Helping them with technology, doing sports with them, playing games with them would all be good.

    Our last 12 workawayers have been men, which has worked very well as we have two boys. But we are open to welcoming either a woman or a man this time.

    We would like you to be proactively helpful around the house, with cleaning and tidying, especially the kitchen and willing to help out as required.

    We are a very friendly, welcoming family and are really looking forward to having you come and stay with us :)

    We are a very friendly easy going family. Simon works long hours a mixture from home and in the office and Emily home educates the boys at home. We have activities we go to most days with the boys. We love watching movies and take the boys to the cinema quite regularly too. We are also very interested in current affairs, politics and the news.

    The boys are both autistic, with the eldest also having ADHD and some sensory and anxiety issues, which means at times they can be challenging, and they do not always behave or react as a neurotypical child might, but they are also very loving and friendly with the right person. It will help greatly if you are a positive, patient and calm person from a stable background. And to be understanding and accepting of their differences. If you have experience of children with Autism, ADHD and other neurodiversities that would be helpful. They require greater empathy, patience and understanding than an average child.

    I need the workawayer who joins us to be emotionally stable and calm with a happy family background of their own. As the mother to two neurodiverse children I do not have the bandwidth to parent another person who brings other problems and issues into our home. I need someone who can help me and be a positive member of our family.

    During your time off you can take the short walk into Hemel Hempstead and visit the the park and the many many shops, restaurants and bars. You can also take the short walk to the train station and then be in central London in 30 minutes. You will not be stuck for things to do.

    We would be very happy to help you and advise you on where to go and how to get to places.
