Our values… peace, equality, simplicity, truth and integrity (acronym PEST or STEP)

Our approach…

  • we think conflict is  inevitable in life,  and may be necessary in the search for justice and equality
  • avoiding or confronting it rarely helps
  • conflict needs to  be acknowledged  and addressed  in constructive, creative ways
  • early identification and response is important

How we work…

  • we are independent of other organisations,  and unaligned with any  political or  pressure group.
  • we forge links with and work in partnership with a wide range of organisations  and interested individuals.
  • we are not building-based and employ only one part-time administrator. We operate through a volunteer management group under the auspices of Newcastle Quaker Meeting, and commission people to do specific tasks.
