When you think of the Quakers it might bring to mind porridge oats or pacifism or perhaps prison reform. But there is much much more to the Quakers than any of these things.

You couldn’t make it up: in a country where two million children don’t have enough to eat and nurses who’ve cared for people during the pandemic are forced to use foodbanks, the government is planning to spend tens of billions on getting even more nuclear weapons.

According to the Royal College of Nursing, around a third of nurses are considering leaving the NHS because they feel ‘under-valued’.
