We make grants to projects relieving suffering of those affected by natural disasters, climate change, war or conflict through the QPSW Relief Grants.

Are you involved with a project or programme working in this way but not for immediate crisis relief? The QPSW Relief Grants may be able to offer you financial support.


All projects applying must be for relief of people who are suffering as a result of natural disasters, climate change, war or conflict but not for immediate crisis relief.

Each project must have a Britain Yearly Meeting Quaker link (person or group) and the application should come from the concern of Friends, supported at least through their local meetings. Projects need not be Quaker led.

Annual grants will usually be for up to £4,000 per project, with a maximum of £6,000 for exceptional projects. Single payments might be made but grants for two or three years may also be considered. Existing as well as new projects may be supported and these grants may cover only part of the total funding required.
