Just to say “thank you so much” Juliet et al for organising such an amazing in-person conference day. The online presentations are wonderful but nothing can truly replace face-to-face talks, workshops and meeting such wonderful home educators and education pioneers! So refreshing and inspiring! Now to process it all and think about incorporating some of these wonderful ideas into our lived and real home ed lives!

I wanted to take the time to thank you Juliet and everyone involved in running Learn Free, it truly is an incredible gathering of experience, knowledge and respect for home educators. It’s given me the support, information, and sense of community at a time when my energy was running low. In that place there can be questioning and confidence dips that when a hand of support is offered can make a huge difference to a family. I now feel enthused and ready to step forward into another year.

About the Organiser

Juliet English is mum to 7 children and has been home educating since 1998. Originally from South Africa, the family moved to the UK in 2007. Juliet has a BA degree in Social Work, but stopped practising as a social worker in 1993 to be a stay-at-home mum. She has run, or helped run, 3 successful home educating groups, in the different cities she’s lived in, and has organised the annual Learn Free Conference since 2012, with the support of her local home ed group. She is currently still home educating her youngest child, and entered the world of foster care in December 2022. The growth in home education in the UK has led to a greater demand for support, advice, and encouragement, and it has been Juliet’s dream for some years to establish something to help those families needing it. She loves meeting others that are as passionate about home education as she is, because it provides common ground for people of different walks of life and backgrounds to agree on.
