We are meetining weekly in the YMCA community center at 2 Shakespeare St Cardiff CF24 3ES. We have a fully fitted kitchen, teens chill out area upstairs, TVs, pool, table tennis, computer games along side a multi use games area and park. We are active in advertising activities on facebook where home educating families and those considering home education can stay informed as to our regular meetups and activities. For proffessionals looking for information, advice or support please contact us using the contact page.

As you look around the site you will find we try

and do our best to provide good links to a variety of educational sites as well as other groups in Wales. The group takes pride in bringing together families and children of all ages to socialise both at the group and outside.

At New Foundations Home Education we don't judge each other’s choices. We are home educators that accept children/families of all ages, genders and nationalities every one is welcome.

We have a strict no bullying policy so that children and adults can feel safe.

We encourage feedback and/or suggestions so you can let us know what you want to do here so we can work together on making it happen..


In 2020 as the country was thrown in to lockdown due to the covid pandemic families were faced with home education with no knowledge or experience or even choice. Facebook groups were set up offering support from the established home education community to the families looking for support. As the pandemic eased and schools reopened many families started to deregister children some from fear of being exposed to covid and some because they felt they could now provide their children with a good education at home. We realised that families searching for support would find us easier to contact us if our name was shorter and directly reflected what we do so took the decision to change the name of the charity to Home Education Wales.

New Foundations Home Education was established in 2008 

On 1st October 2013 New Foundations Home Education became a

Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) registration number no.
