Welcome to the HEdNI website.
The purpose of this website is to be informative, interesting and helpful to all families in Northern Ireland who are home-educating or who have an interest in doing so.
You can navigate the site using the links in the sidebar.
What is HEdNI?
HEdNI is simply a group of home-educators in Northern Ireland. HEdNI is an inclusive group, welcoming those of all backgrounds, religious beliefs, races and cultures. As an organisation, HEdNI does not promote any one method of home-educating; rather it supports the rights of families to choose for themselves what suits them best.
There is a HEdNI email group which you can join at Yahoo Groups – click the “Email group” link in the sidebar for more details. You can also join by email – again, click the link for details.
HEdNI started with the setting-up of the email group in 2003 by some home-educating parents who were frustrated with the lack of on-line information about home-education in Northern Ireland. The website was set up in 2004, with the same purpose as the email group: to provide information, support and a way for those interested in home-education to contact others.
We hope you’ll find this website helpful. If you have questions about home-education, you might want to start with the FAQ. If you have further questions or want to learn more, consider joining the email group. If you have a question or suggestion related to the website, please use the Contact Form on this website. Links for all of these can be found on the sidebar of this page.
