Home Education Advisory Service

Description:

Home Education Advisory Service (HEAS) is a national home education charity based in the United Kingdom.  It is dedicated to the provision of advice and practical support for families who wish to educate their children at home in preference to sending them to school.  Interest in home education is increasing and HEAS recognises that reliable information should be available for everyone.

HEAS was established in 1995 by a group of experienced home educators in order to provide good quality information on both the legal and practical aspects of home education.  Since then HEAS has given information to many families and also to education authorities, other professionals, academic researchers, politicians, voluntary agencies, the media and other bodies.

HEAS offers information for home educators including advice about educational materials, resources, GCSE examinations, special educational needs, information technology, legal matters and curriculum design.  It also produces a range of leaflets and the Home Education Handbook.  

In addition HEAS subscribers receive a quarterly HEAS Bulletin, access to the Advice Line, and the HEAS registration card (for home educating families) which gives free or reduced rates of admission to certain museums and sites of interest.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website or contact your local Education Authority.
