The Youthwork Strategy for Yorkshire isn’t complicated… we know that post pandemic, young people are longing for in-person events, good conversations with each other and adults and inclusive spaces

Quakers in Yorkshire already provides three types of excellent “high point” residentials through the year, Easter Settlement for Families, two Junior Holidays for younger children and Yorkshire Friends Holiday School and reunion for older teens. 

Something is needed to link up these experiences and keep friendships and relationships ticking between them. That’s where link group comes in… a single night, cheap-as-chips residentials that roves around Yorkshire linking up young people, events and Quaker communities. Link group is a mostly social, but distinctively Quaker get-together to which any 11-18’s with a Quaker interest can come.
