The Quaker Life Network works to nurture the connection, between individual Friends, Quaker communities and Quaker Life.

The Quaker Life Network is is a way to enable connections between individual Quakers, role-holders in Quaker communities and members of BYM and Woodbrooke staff. It inks with local development work and helps to promote events and activities.

The Network links into the work of Quaker Life Representative Council to amplify the learning and experience of Reps to help foster positive change within Quaker communities.

The Network includes a number of groups (clusters) that support role holders or work on specific issues such as mental health or outreach.

    Network clusters

    Clusters are groups of network members that are brought together by a common interest. Clusters grow because there is a need for the work and Friends have a wealth of knowledge and willingness to serve. They gather and grow around pieces of work that Quaker Life Central Committee has identified.

    Current topic based clusters include: conflict, mental health, Peace education and Godly Play as well as our range of groups for role holders such as the Librarians cluster.
