How to get involved in QCP UK
We are a registered charity. Because we have no office or paid staff, our enthusiastic Trustees and Associates carry out our work and all the money we raise goes to the DRC.
Trustees meet three or four times a year in Manchester, Leicester or Cambridge, to consider reports, plan ahead and ensure effective financial controls. Between meetings they communicate mostly by email.
Trustees need not be Quakers but would respect Quaker values and the Quaker business method.
At present we have nine Trustees. We may have up to fourteen, so we are urgently seeking new trustees with time, enthusiasm and experience, especially in areas such as social media, crowd funding, French and Swahili, international development, microcredit and peace building and treasureship.
We also have Associates who offer their expertise to trustees but are not involved in decision-making/discernment. They might occasionally come to Trustee meetings, but would mostly communicate by email. Their involvement and time commitment is less than that of Trustees, but their experience is invaluable.
