    Are you passionate about housing issues? Do you believe that everybody has the right to live in a place that is safe, secure and appropriate to their needs?

    Quaker Housing Trust is an independent charity, formed in 1967. It is a national channel through which Quakers can put money directly into projects creating homes. The trust gives practical expression to the longstanding Quaker concern about housing need in Britain. The concern is not just about housing; it is about people and lives, and having a safe, secure and appropriate place to live. It recognises that housing – a home – is a vital element of an inclusive and compassionate society.

    The Secretary manages the work of Quaker Housing Trust, deals with applications to our grants and loans programme, acts as company secretary, and provides support to the 12 trustees. The Secretary also leads on our media strategy and keeps the trust focused on its major areas of activity, ensuring the timely production of management information and preparing the business for our board meetings.
