Support | Free Word

Please help Free Word by becoming a supporter.


Free Word is a charity. We are grateful to Fritt Ord and Arts Council England for core funding which provides 40% of our income; we also generate 30% annually through hiring our spaces.

However, to support the artists who make our programme of events inspiring we rely on donations from individuals, companies, trusts and foundations.

We’re excited to be building a supportive community where artists and writers can speak powerfully and freely.

Every donation we receive makes a difference. Please join us.



Your donation will be taken via your debit or credit card each month. We will let you know this is happening and you can cancel at any time. You may also be asked to renew your donation when your card expires.

Please leave the ‘Automatically Renew’ box ticked.
