This study develops understandings on the historical background, functions and issues of concern of home-based learning (HBL} support organisations in Western Australia (WA). It provides a new perspective on issues facing HBL support groups in supporting the HBL community in WA. The functions of Home-Based Leaming Network (HBLN), the only State-wide HBL support organisation, were categorised according to official, non-official, unintended, undesired, and aspirational functions. The major issues of concern for HBL support-organisation leaders in supporting the HBL community related to 'the various characteristics of the HBL community', 'various State authorities', 'the practice of HBL' and 'HBLN as an organisation'.
