Quaker Service

Charity description

Quaker Service logo
Quaker Service is a family welfare charity which has been delivering and developing a range of services in Northern Ireland since 1969.

Service was formerly known as the Ulster Quaker Service Committee set up in
1969 in response to the politically heated situation in Northern Ireland. As a result, a number of services were developed
included the opening of Quaker Cottage, a cross community family day care
centre, in the early 1980’s along with the opening of the Visitors’ Centres at
Long Kesh/HMP Maze in 1972 and at Maghaberry Prison in 1988.

We now deliver a range of therapeutic services for mothers, their children and teenagers
at Quaker Cottage in west Belfast. We also provide practical and emotional
support for the families of those in custody at Maghaberry Prison. This
includes a new volunteer project, Quaker Connections.

Our vision
is to live in a society where people are valued and fulfil their potential. Our
mission is to play a practical role in reducing violence, suffering and
disadvantage by providing services which support, value and empower people.
