Every week I publish social media posts, email newsletters, podcast episodes and little films to help support and encourage the home education community as we walk this road less travelled together. If you’d like to support my work, helping me invest more time and more resources into doing more and spreading it further, then a small one-off contribution will make a huge impact.

If you’re in a position to help support my life’s work in this way, THANK YOU.

Why donate?

To give you more context on what I’m trying to achieve with my work, here’s a series of quotes I’ve been sent from people in the home education community. I receive messages like this every day.

“You offer more inspiration and encouragement then you’ll ever know, and it has had life-changing effects for us. You’re helping us feel brave enough to follow our hearts and live the life we always wanted to and for that we are forever grateful.”

Meaghan, Ireland

“You’ve spent years making accessible content, and the podcast just brings all of it forward. Thank you.”

Nichole, USA

“So grateful I came across your writing a couple years back now. Without seeming hyperbolic, it was a catalyst in changing our approach to learning. Thank you for sharing your family’s story so openly.”

Anjuli, Australia

“Refreshing, raw, honest, and oh so relatable. Your perspective has provided us with a completely new awareness of what is possible for our family and the vitality of our incredible children.”

Pipalotta2012 (Apple Podcasts review), New Zealand

“I have been searching for podcast after podcast on unschooling. I wish there were hundreds of them and I would binge them for hours a day. It gives me peace about my choices and joy for the future.”

My Boys Momma (Apple Podcasts review), USA

“You literally covered every single concern, every single comment I’ve had from other people about my child not being socialised, being weird or being deprived.”

Lucy, United Kingdom

“I am so grateful to have this incredibly engaging, thoughtful and well-produced podcast in my life. It is inspiration and connection. It is guiltless reassurance. Thank you for bringing the joy and fullness of home education into our ears and hearts.”

“I can’t even find the words to properly express how much Issy’s blog and now PODCAST means to me! He is incredible and he writes/speaks in such a knowledgeable and powerful way. I am forever recommending his work to anyone who will listen. ❤️”
