Quaker Homeless Action

Quaker Homeless Action (QHA) is a national charity run primarily by volunteers. QHA is a small and flexible organization that focuses on projects that are not funded by other organisations. Our projects include The Quaker Christmas Shelter and The Quaker Mobile Library.  We are always keen to hear from f/Friends with suggestions for other areas of work we could support - see our Affiliate Projects page for more information about this.

The majority of funding for the work of Quaker Homeless Action comes from donations from Quakers. The charity is one example of Quaker ‘hands-on’ practical help in Britain today, and is run by a volunteer Council of Trustees

QHA's vision is for a society where homeless, marginalised and excluded people are empowered and supported to break out of exclusion, poverty, and isolation to experience life in all its fullness.
