HE UK needs your support

A small favour…

While more people every year make use of the invaluable information on this web site, over 250,000 this year alone, (3.4 Million hits over the last 12 months) the income I need to pay to maintain the site, offset the cost of my time researching the information people expect to find here and directly supporting families who need advice and support does not.

Yes, I could do more, but this takes time I otherwise need to earn a living as well as travel books and other costs. I turn down far more conferences where I could learn more or share more about home education than I can ever afford to accept, normally traveling and staying at my own expense.

I never charge a home educator for my time, though I have rarely asked for contributions when I can't avoid it, like travel costs to meetings. I prefer to keep it that way, I’d rather close the site than ask for payment for services, especially as I know many, families with SEN children and families who have given up work to deal with a child in crisis, could not afford it.

Please consider making a very small payment towards all my time and costs to keep this web site live. If everyone who visited this site contributed even £0.05 (5 pence) it would make a tremendous difference.

If you found the information on this site useful, please consider the time it took to research, verify, collate, write, code and upload and the cost of running a web site generally that carries so much data. Think also that I too have bills to pay and the time I spend doing this is time I’m not working for myself.

If you found this site particularly useful, if it went some way towards helping you, please consider a small pay pal payment. £5 or even a micro payment of just £1 would at least show your appreciation.

If you do decide to assist in this valuable work, keeping this web site live

please send a small payment, using pay pal to mike@home-education.org.uk

Thank you for reading this and considering sharing in my work.

Mike Wood.
