“Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called Children of God” ~ Jesus of Nazareth

Peace & Reconciliation

As a devout Quaker and a follower of the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Wilfred Southall was a pacifist, believing that war and violence should be avoided at all costs and that there should be a relentless pursuit to settle disputes by peaceful means. The Trust maintains this position.

Each year, we award grants to organisations that promote peace and reconciliation. Some recent examples are as follows:
