Quakers embrace difficult issues
Over the centuries, Quakers have never been slow to confront some of the most challenging social issues. The successful campaigning on concientious objection, winning the right for people to refuse to fight in a war is well known. But less well known is the work Quakers do supporting the rehabilitation of people who have sexually offended.
The Church Times recently visited Glebe House, a Quaker charity in Cambridgeshire that for the past 30 years has successfully specialised in treating harmful sexual behaviour in young men. A number of Norfolk Quakers are Trustees at Glebe House. The Church Times article can be found here.
