About Us

About the Arkbound FoundationBased in Bristol and Glasgow, the Arkbound Foundation is a cross-border charity that aims to widen access to literature and improve diversity within the media industry.

We were founded in 2017 and are a registered charity (Charity Number 1173072) that runs projects in both England and Scotland.

The Arkbound Foundation is the only independent charity in the UK that is concerned with improving accessibility and diversity within both publishing and journalism. 

Our supporters include:-

  • The Alexander Mosley Charitable Foundation, who have kindly provided an initial grant to help pilot the Regional Editors Network, and the Council of Europe, who have also provided funding and some mentoring for the Regional Editors Network.

We are also grateful to:-

  • The Media Diversity Institute
  • Outside In
  • The Open Democracy Foundation

Our trading arm, Arkbound Ltd, generates income from book publishing services and other provisions, which helps us to move away from being solely dependent on grants and donations.
