  • Contact Details

  • DD slash MM slash YYYY
  • This could be a local or area meeting, Young Friends General Meeting (YFGM), a local young adult worship group, an annual Quaker event (as attender or volunteer for Children and Young People’s events), European and Middle Eastern Young Friends (EMEYF), or other Quaker group that you consider to be your worshipping community. If you do not consider yourself to be a part of one of these groups, please give examples of how you have been involved with Quakers in Britain.
  • You may not feel able to ask your local or area meeting for help, particularly if you do not view it as your main Quaker community. You do not need to approach them for help before applying for a Quaker Events and Learning Grant, but if you haven’t done so, you just need to briefly outline why this is. We ask this question as some people may not be aware of it as a potential source of help, and to ensure that such funds are accessed where possible.
  • Please try to keep responses to 100 words.
  • Maximum £500
  • Purpose for which the money would be used

    Please give details and specific amounts
