About us

Founded as an au pair agency in 2006 Friends for Families and its spin-off Learning in Britain hav already experience in the placement of young people from Germany and abroad for many years. In the past we already helped many young people to enter Germany or assisted them in leaving Germany and solving the problems of day-to-day life abroad.

As to our programme Learning in Britain we benefit from our good contacts to the UK. The educational institutions in England, Scotland and Wales, which cooperate with us, are  among the best within the scope of education and further education, which Great Britain has to offer.
