Provider of Residential Services
HSN - Homestay Network is a provider of residential services to children and young people. This places a mandatory reporting obligation on HSN - Homestay Network in relation to Children (guests we place with our hosts who are under 16) and a reporting requirement for Young People (guests we place with our hosts who are aged between 16 and 18). HSN - Homestay Network takes seriously any report of inappropriate behaviour against Children and Young People we placed in your care.
This may mean:
- a guest could be removed from a host with little or no notice
- forfeiture of any and all amounts paid in advance for accommodation
- a report being lodged with the appropriate authorities.
- For more information, please call our staff for a confidential discussion.
