Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM) works on behalf of Quakers in Britain. It is thanks to contributions from Friends that we are able to undertake this work, which arises from our discerned leadings. There are many ways we can contribute, including time and skills as well as money.

We value your support and ask you to uphold the work and consider finding out more about how you can get involved. You might be interested in having a look at an overview of our projects.

If you think you might be willing to be more actively involved with the life of the yearly meeting then please consider completing the Quaker Service Information Form. Or you might be interested in the Quaker Life Network.

We ask Quaker meetings to provide the equivalent of £150 per Quaker when they contribute to central funds. In this way we hope to achieve our target of £2.1 million from contributions to secure our work. We know this is a big ask for some and within easy reach for others. Let us give what we can, and be joyous and cheerful in our giving.

Thank you for making the work possible.
