NPC’s analysis of Quaker Social Action.
Quaker Social Action
Quaker Social Action (QSA) is a community-based charity that tackles poverty and isolation in east London. East London is a culturally rich and ethnically diverse area, but also a very poor one. QSA’s staff put a lot of effort into getting to know their community, and they create new projects and build on established approaches to tackle the most urgent issues local people face, including financial exclusion, unemployment and fear of crime. QSA is not afraid to experiment and be creative, and the charity puts a lot of thought into developing and piloting innovative services—for example, QSA is a leader in financial education for families.
