Quakers work for an economic system that has equality, justice and environmental sustainability at its heart.

We challenge unjust economic structures and are taking positive action to build an economic system which is based on social justice and respect for the Earth.

    High levels of economic inequality are damaging the fabric of British society. Quakers across the country are involved in initiatives to support people experiencing poverty and are calling for greater political action to address the root causes of inequality.

    Social security

    Quakers have been working with other churches and Faiths to campaign against recent proposals which would further weaken our social security system.

    Principles for a new economy

    Quakers are exploring and articulating a vision of how the economy could be transformed so that it operates more in line with Quaker values. We are also taking practical action that could help to make that transformation a reality.

    Ethical finance

    Our bank accounts, pension funds and investments make us all a part of the global financial system. We provide information and support to Quakers trying to manage financial resources in a way that is consistent with their beliefs.
