Since 1969 Ulster Quaker Service (now Quaker Service) has provided services to mothers and children, prisoners and their families, young people and senior citizens.
Our Vision – to live in a society where people are valued and fulfill their potential.
Our Ethos is guided by Quaker beliefs and values. Quakers believe that there is a divine presence in everyone and this fundamental belief leads us to value the equal worth and unique nature of each individual.
