About us

Who we are

Quaker Social Action (QSA) is an east London-based anti-poverty charity that carries out a variety of practical projects to support people living on low incomes. Insights from this frontline delivery are used to provide training for other practitioners, and to carry out influencing and campaigning work on a national level. 

Our award-winning projects meet practical needs:

  • Down to Earth practically supports people on low incomes struggling with funeral costs and pushes for strategic change within the funeral industry and to government
  • Move on Up provides supported housing for young adult carers, supporting them to build their life skills and make positive moves into further education or work     
  • Made of Money offers a creative and reflective approach to financial wellbeing for individuals and families on low incomes. A training programme shares our approach with professionals across the UK
  • This Way Up offers coaching and mindfulness to people on low incomes wanting to move on from a difficult experience and build up resilience for a more positive future
  • Cook Up provides a shared kitchen space for people whodon’t have access to one, to cook and connect together
  • Turn a Corner is a mobile library for people affected by homelessness in London, offering a good book, a companionable chat and signposting to further support
  • Aberfeldy Big Local, Pimlico Million and World's End and Lots Road Big Local all bring together neighbours to connect with each other and bring about positive change in their local area

We are not a religious charity but Quaker values of equality, simplicity and compassion sit at the heart of our work.
