Young Friends

Our work with and for children and young people and young adult Friends.

QAAD seeks to support young Friends in ways that are responsive to their needs, views and lives. On an individual level, we can be contacted for advice, and we have offered group sessions and workshops, including at Young Friends General Meeting, special interest groups at Quaker gatherings, and Link Groups. We are always open to new ways of enabling young Friends to share their experiences and concerns, and to consider Quaker testimonies on substance use and gambling.

Drawing on our group work with young people, we developed session materials with the Children and Young Person’s Team which focused on addressing issues not covered in the school curriculum, particularly spirituality and Quaker testimonies and values. The materials were published in ‘Journeys in the Spirit’ and print copies are available on request.

QAAD supported the making of a short alcohol education film by Lianna Pim whilst she was a pupil at Sibford Quaker School. A few copies of the DVD are still available; please contact Alison Mather if you would like to purchase or borrow one.
