Current concerns

NFPB was set up to ‘advise and encourage Friends in the North, and through them their fellow citizens, in the active promotion of peace in all its height and breadth’. Our members meet during the year in full members’ meetings and we undertake projects in relation to a number of the concerns raised and considered at these meetings.

The Board membership and its meetings are also a points for discussion, reflection and information sharing on a range of other peace concerns. This part of the website is a place for information about some of these.

If you are a Facebook user, this is also place where information on the range of concerns of our members is shared. Our Facebook page is here
