About EIL UK

EIL United KingdomEIL UK is a registered UK charity based in the beautiful Malvern Hills of England. For over 75 years we have been working with people from different cultures, breaking down barriers to mutual understanding and increasing cultural awareness. We provide opportunities for individuals and groups to explore the UK, live with a UK family, study english and understand more about British culture in the 21st century. We also offer selected outbound programmes for UK citizens to explore other cultures through volunteering, work experience and group programmes.
