Educational opportunities for home educators
Home educating families are passionate about giving a good start to their children but receive no support from Local Education Authorities; many are on a low income. New Foundations provides educational and social opportunities to these families to help nurture their children's learning.
The project is open ended
New Foundations H.E.
Children who are home educated lack social and educational opportunities especially for large group activities, many also have special needs such as Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, Dyspraxia and Dyslexia to name a few. It is hard for these children to access team work in play, sport or academic attainment.
By providing educational opportunity in the form of science, music, maths, english, sports and anything there is a demand for as well as social opportunity by providing equipment such as pool table, table tennis, games, computers where otherwise isolated children can meet and socialise with others in the same situation.

Home educated children will have access to educational and social opportunities which will help them to progress their educations and develop social skills. Success will demonstrated by Home educated children going forward to pass exams and develop long term friendships.
The main risk to the project would be failure to achieve funding. We are dealing with this by maximising our ability to raise funds via selling donated items such as books, selling lunches ect.
Donors will be invited to view the project, records are kept of attendence to report back to donors, pictorial records are obtained and feedback from service users.
