The business of the QHT is undertaken in the Quaker manner.
Quakerism is based upon four main testimonies – to Simplicity, Truth, Equality and Peace – and the QHT is just one of many examples of us putting our faith into action. These four precepts guide us practically in all that we do as a charity
The meetings in which we consider applications always begin and end with a period of silence. At the beginning the silence makes a break with what has gone before and gives time to focus on the task. Silence at the end helps to provide a peaceful closure and reflection. We always seek unity in decisions and to find a way forward that is acceptable to all present, we do not take votes and we agree the detail of our decisions word for word.
As a small charity we wish to use our very limited resources where they can make a genuine and positive difference.
Ideally this is by helping small organisations to enhance the quality of their housing provision or to create new homes.
