The “Irene Fund” , named after our Founder, Irene Champernowne, was created to help people who would benefit to afford the educational events which the Trust provides, in particular the Champernowne Summer Course.

 Irene Champernowne believed in learning through a course of arts-based activities and communal living, based on a Jungian model. 

The Trust receives consistently high feedback from past attendees about the benefits they gain from these courses.All agree that experiencing the Jungian-focused training with people from a variety of backgrounds is enormously helpful.
