Education Otherwise

Education Otherwise promotes and supports the right of a parent or guardian to home educate their child should they wish to do so. We offer a targeted range of services and tailored information based on proprietary research. We also liaise and work directly with individuals, public and private organisations and Government bodies.

If you have a home education related enquiry and need advice we can help. Please be aware that both the advice line and email are answered by volunteers: hours and response time are subject to their availability.
