Welcome to the HEdNI website.

This is your window to the wealth of information, fun, and support available from the network of home educating families in Northern Ireland.

HEdNI is an inclusive group, welcoming those of all backgrounds, religious beliefs, races and cultures. We do not promote any one method of home-educating; rather we support the right of all families to choose for themselves what suits them best.

Please help us to protect home education in Northern Ireland by writing to your MLA, and asking them to insist that Education and Library Boards act within the law.
A government body attempting to establish a policy document that deliberately over-reaches its legal powers should be of concern to everybody, not just home educating parents.
More information here, find out how you can help here.
