      Raymond Williams
      Taking as our guide the ideas of Raymond Williams, which he developed in his many and varied writings, we are a Charity whose trustees aim to continue his 'Long Revolution'.

      The Raymond Williams Foundation (RWF) commitments are specifically within the sphere of Adult Education.
      Williams spent many years teaching adult students who came to him through the WEA and his extensive range of essays and lectures on education, published by NIACE in 1993,* offer a seaching analysis of the conditions for a genuine learning society.
      In a time when the liberal adult education which Williams knew and respected (summarised in his statement "I've often defined my own social purpose as the creation of an educated and participating democracy") is needed as much as ever, we will help sustain and extend that tradition supporting courses and disadvantaged students through grants and bursaries
