The Home Education Network supports home educating families by facilitating networking, by organising group activities and home-ed camps, by providing up to date information on regulatory matters and by negotiating discounts. Home Education Network also maintains this web site; runs a phone support service for members and the wider home education community; and researches and publishes Otherways Magazine.
Otherways Magazine contains the latest news, research, workshops and events, networking and support group information, letters from families and articles on every aspect of home education from Australia and around the world. We cover all topics in the effort to inspire, inform and encourage.
The Home Education Network is your home education community, all HEN activities are organised and run by volunteers.
Each year brings more informative and inspiring articles in Otherways, as well as more camps and activities and an increasingly dynamic home education community.
