Yorkshire Centre for Quakers in Britain

A new staff hub has opened at Carlton Hill Meeting House, Leeds.  This is a new venture by Quakers in Britain to take the centrally managed work to Friends, rather than all be based at Friends House in London.  Some staff who live in Yorkshire have moved permanently to Leeds; others will be part-time in Leeds. 

An official opening took place on 18 September 2021.
