As a registered charity with the Charities Commission, Mountain Movers is run for the public benefit with the aim to advance education for children who are being electively home educated, in particular, but not exclusively, those children with disabilities.
We aim to be inclusive of all needs and abilities, with a goal to provide support and sessions designed for siblings of children with disability as well.
Our goal is to enable electively home educated children to participate as fully as possible in society with a positive sense of community and belonging through the facilitation of co-operative learning opportunities, enrichment arts and inclusive sporting activities.
We hope to reduce social isolation of both children and their families by providing a regular safe and confidential setting to facilitate the development of social skills as well as providing support, advice and signposting to additional services.
We aspire to improve the skills and knowledge of parent/carers who have taken responsibility to provide the education for their children by providing access to training, advice and support so they are better equipped to educate their children in a rounded and informed manner.
We hope through the sharing of educational resources and the facilitation of educational opportunities and training, to reduce poverty and ease the financial burden faced by electively home educating families.
We hope to promote greater understanding of elective home education with the aim to reduce hostility and the associated isolation for this minority group.
