Protecting the most vulnerable among us

Updated 11 February 2021

A few years ago my partner and I cared for foster children. Our Quaker meeting has a great children's group and Sundays often saw us there – joining the 'adult' meeting as we all gathered; playing games in the children's group; and getting to know new friends. I think they learned about Quaker faith and values, but mostly they had fun. And that lovely experience opened my eyes to the importance of safeguarding in Quaker communities.

How are Quakers meeting? A summer snapshot from around Britain

Updated 13 August 2020

A joy and privilege of my work is spending time in the lives of Quaker meetings. Over the last few months, I've seen Quakers respond creatively, faithfully and lovingly to the challenges presented by Covid-19. This has led to worship happening in ways most of us would scarcely have dreamt of a year ago.
