We are a Quaker trust that seeks to transform the world by
supporting people tackling the root causes of conflict and injustice.
We aspire to place Quaker values of equality, truth, peace and
sustainability at the heart of everything we do.
We recognise that change can take many years to achieve
and are willing to take the long view, and to take risks.
We aim to be a responsive funder, happy to support our grantees
to help them make the difference they want to make.
We fund work under four main themes: Peace & Security,
Power & Accountability, Rights & Justice, Sustainable Future.
We fund across the UK, including a dedicated programme in Northern Ireland.
We also make a small number of grants for work at a European level.
Our next application deadlines are 30 November for Northern Ireland, Sustainable Future and Cross-cutting applications, and 14 December for Peace & Security, Power & Accountability and Rights & Justice.
