Quakers in Britain
Quakers have long supported peace building and peace builders internationally. In East Africa we support peace builders to change the core conditions that lead to violent conflict. We implement the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
Quaker faith is an active one. We offer a diverse range of workshops, courses and resources for Quakers and others working for nonviolent social change.

We support Quakers to live out their deep commitment to peace. This includes promoting peace education, challenging militarism, campaigning against war and for disarmament, and supporting the peace movement in Britain.
We work on specific aspects of social justice in Britain. Our longstanding work for a more compassionate criminal justice system continues. Housing and housing conditions is another long standing Quaker concern. We are also developing work around forced migration.
Quakers want an economic system that has equality, justice and environmental sustainability at its heart.
In 2011 Quakers in Britain made a commitment to become a low-carbon, sustainable community. We support local action to live out this commitment, and we campaign for energy justice and action on climate change.
Grant-making is an important area of turning our faith into action. Through grants we support groups and individuals in work and development around our values.
As Quakers we believe that faith is expressed through action. Quakers and Quaker meetings live out this belief in their communities. We share these stories here.
