HE UK needs
A small favour…
founded in January 2000, HE UK is the oldest website
supporting home educators in the UK. It has around 275 thousand
unique visitors looking for information logging 4 million hits
a year. With over 220 pages it's also the largest. It operates
from the basis of internationally
recognised human rights and UK law.
Running this site and dealing with all the enquiries
I receive, has become a full time effort. The logistics, including
(among other things) specialist software, maintaining tech hardware,
hosting and fast fibre links, necessary to run HE UK, publish books
and continue related work comes to around £2,000 a year.
Please consider the time and effort it took to research,
verify, collate, write, code and maintain all this information.
So, if you found this site useful, if it went
some way towards helping you, please consider a small pay pal
contribution. 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:
you for reading this and considering sharing in my work.
This is for those wanting to contribute to the work of those
who create online content.
The costs of running this web site are met by myself
and a little advertising.
