Other bodies whose trustees are appointed directly by Meeting for Sufferings
Quaker Housing Trust Limited
Quaker Housing Trust Limited was formed in 1967 in response to Friends’ concern about the provision of adequate and appropriate housing. The trust makes grants and loans, and offers advice to charitable organisations providing accommodation, particularly to vulnerable people. Independent of the Britain Yearly Meeting Funds, it is a channel whereby Friends may give or lend money for such provision. It is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
Quaker Housing Trust Limited has between seven and twelve trustees appointed for terms of three years by Meeting for Sufferings, names having been submitted by the Central Nominations Committee, to form its council of management.
