The Home Service

The Home Service | Homeschooling in the UK | Scoop.it

Home Service was founded in 1992 by a group of parents, who were themselves involved in Christian home education in the UK, to provide help and advice for those who were treading the same road or thinking of doing so.

Many others are considering such a move but are uncertain as to its legality and practicality.
