The Arvon Foundation

The Arvon Foundation runs unique 5-day creative writing courses. Our social outreach work includes working with schools and youth groups of under-18's from some of the most disadvantaged areas of the UK, improving their literacy skills and their confidence at one of our beautiful, secluded, creative writing centres in the British countryside.

We also work in partnership with other arts organisations and charities such as Graeae Disabled Theatre and Medical Foundation for Victims of Torture allowing almost 2,000 people each year to find self-expression through the written word.
