Quaker House Belfast worked for peace in the Northern Irish context over the last 28 years. The Management Committee resolved that the project, known as, Quaker House Belfast, would be laid down on 31st May 2010.
The strength of Quaker work is that it stems from, and is sustained by, a concern, but it is also a strength to recognise when that concern or piece of work has run its course.
Although it is recognised that there is still much peace building work to be done in the Northern Irish context, the Management Committee now feel that Quaker House is no longer an appropriate vehicle for this work.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those organisations, groups and individuals who have supported the project.
