Quaker Stewardship Committee
Quaker Stewardship Committee was created in 2002 to support our meetings in their stewardship of property and to co-ordinate the relationship between the yearly meeting and those administering charity law. It was laid down by Britain Yearly Meeting in 2022 and its responsibilities allocated to other Quaker bodies.
Meeting for Sufferings, on behalf of Yearly Meeting, has responsibility for the oversight of Area Meetings’ compliance with their legal responsibilities.
Quaker Life Central Committee has responsibility for the advice and guidance function of Quaker Stewardship Committee, including the support of Area Meeting trustees.
Britain Yearly Meeting trustees have responsibility for liaising with the Charity Commission on matters of general concern to Quakers, and, working with General Meeting for Scotland, for liaison with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).
