We are so very grateful to @franzi_eli for sending these amazing pics of her host fam and her message to all pairs out there.

The Au-pair Programme in the UK should be saved because of many different reasons:
Firstly, it is such an amazing opportunity for either, the au pair and the host family, to get to know a new culture. Staying in a new family in a different country gives you the best option to experience what living in this counrty is like and it was the best way for me to get to know differences and similarities between German and English culture. In the last nine months, I didn`t just learn the language here, I learnt how to live like a ”real british person” by travelling through the country, meeting new people or just going to college. By cooking german meals or teaching some german words, I also got my hostfamily, especially my hostkids, interested in german culture. So this cultural exchange is one of many great benefit of being or having an au pair.
Secondly, I got so much more independent during my stay in the UK. When I first arrived, everything was new and you didn`t really know anyone. I had to do many things, which my parents were used to do for me. This taught me a lot for my whole life and will also help me when I`ll first get my own apartment. Planning trips for the kids, cooking new meals with them and keeping them busy in general, helped me to become a more organized person what will definitely help me in my future.
The UK was also a good place for me to choose, because it’s not too far away from Germany and as the time shift is only an hour, it’s pretty easy to stay in contact with friends and family. At the same time it is an English speaking country, what was very important for me, because I wanted to improve my English before going to University. Good English skills are always useful to have and they will definitely help me in my later life.
Staying in England for a year, was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I became part of another family and they became part of mine. We collected so many amazing memories together, which I will never forget. This year abroad gave me so much.

In my opinion being an Aupair gives you a lot for your life. First of all you learn to live somewhere else where no one knows you. For me that was a very big step and I was worried I would be homesick. But I didn’t become homesick at all. Of course I do miss my family in Germany but because I’m in England there is only one hour of time shift and that makes it so easy to stay in contact with them. The experience of living in another family, like a real family member, is only given to you when you are an Aupair. It is so interesting how other people are living and how similar and also how different many things are. Of course to improve your English is always useful and often necessary for your future and to live with English speaking people is definitely the best way to do that. Spending time with children gives you very much. They think about things you probably would never think about and have such creative ideas and show you all their feelings. England was the best option for me to go for an Aupair, because it is in Europe so not very far away from Germany and I wanted to improve my English. I think that’s why England is a very popular place to go and we should try everything to keep that programme. I am taking a lot out of that stay here as an Aupair. Rainbow Aupairs made it possible to find that amazing family for me and I always felt in good hands.

I’m so happy I did Aupairing here in England and thankful for Rainbow Aupairs for their support. I definitely would recommend everyone to be an Aupair, because it gives you much more than just improving your language skills. I have a second home in London now and know I can always come back here. And what could be better than having a second family in a different country?

We are so very proud of @philined_1 who gallantly stayed to help her host fam during the pandemic to assist with their twin girls and her account of why the #Aupair programmes UK 🇬🇧 should remain.

What splendid photos sent in by @_hannah_03.01. She’s one of our superstar au pairs who stayed in the UK despite the pandemic to help her host family. Here is why she thinks we should #saveaupairs
In the UK.

The Au Pair Programme in the UK should be saved because it is a really defining experience for either, the au pair and the host family.
I’ve been an au pair in England for nine months now and I’m extremely happy that I made this decision.
For me it is a once in a lifetime experience which brought so many various advantages with it: I got to know the British culture and country by living with a British family and travelling through the UK, I improved my English to a higher standard which will help me in later life, I’m part of a second family and found some really good friends and I got more indepented and confident. Most importantly: I collected so many amazing memories and had an absolutely wonderful year in England which I will never forget.
I chose to be an au pair in England because it is not so far away from home like most of the other English-speaking countries and because I was always fascinated by the British culture and wanted to see more of Britain.
In my opinion it would be really sad and difficult when it would no longer be possible for au pairs to come to the UK because also many host families rely on an au pair and need it but it also is a great cultural exchange for them and the children benefit from this unique experience.
