Schoolhouse is committed to supporting all home educators in Scotland regardless of whether they are members or not.

Constitutionally, there is a fee for membership. This is currently set at 0 but may change in the future. We continue to welcome financial donations.

Members and trustees have a duty to protect the work of the charity. We therefore ask potential new members to volunteer with Schoolhouse before we process their application. This is not intended to be arduous or complicated but allows a mechanism for establishing relationships of trust.

There are many ways in which Schoolhouse can benefit from volunteer work e.g. basic admin tasks, help with organizing specific events, answering enquiries either by email or online, meeting with new or potential home educating families, lobbying politicians etc. We would be happy to discuss with you how you might be able to support our work as a volunteer. Alternatively, we might accept references from other charities.
Ideally, it would be good to meet in person but online platforms are also possible. If you are able to travel, we could refund your expenses.
