Our Team

QVA is an independent Quaker charity run by a team of trustees, facilitators and a coordinator.

We have an active group of trustees who oversee the running of the organisation. If you would be interested to join us and have particular skills to offer please get in touch with our Clerk at mail@qva.org.uk.

Our projects are run by pairs of experienced facilitators. They make sure things run smoothly including the catering, pastoral care, work tasks, reflection sessions and worship. We occasionally have vacancies for new facilitators to join the team. If this is something you’d be interested to offer, please contact Kit via the contact form below.
