Who are Quakers?
People have different impressions of who the Quakers are, some based on historical fact, some on misconceptions.
Quakers (who are also called 'Friends') live and work in all areas of society, bound by a common thread of trying to live in a way that helps to build a better world.
There are nearly 500 Quaker meetings in the UK, attended by around 25,000 people. Nearly half a million people worship in Quaker meetings worldwide. You do not have to become a Quaker to attend Quaker meetings, which are open to all and where everyone is welcome.
The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Britain encompasses the 481 local Meetings for Worship as well as all their work, in Britain, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
