    Swarthmoor Hall is a historic house known as the 'cradle of Quakerism'. The house is open to the public four afternoons a week throughout the year and for group tours at other times by appointment. We are looking for Friends who live within travelling distance of the Hall who are interested in acting as tour guides. We do not necessarily need a regular commitment of hours. We do hope to develop a pool of volunteers who we will train as tour guides for our visitors both adults and children.

    If you are looking for roles serving on Quaker Committees or Groups, please read our dedicated Give Time pages.

    Working for Britain Yearly Meeting is exciting and inspiring. Friends who offer service find that they can be led to achieve great things. There are a number of different ways that you can take part. BYM work is helped and directed by committees that answer to Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM). Quakers from across Britain serve on these committees and groups. Full information is available on our Committees and Groups page.
