WELCOME TO YOUR QUAKER HUB

Leap Confronting Conflict was founded by British Quaker Alec Davison in 1987 as a project of The Leaveners (Quaker Community Arts Charity). We began life as LEAP (Leaveners’ Experiments in Arts for Peace). The Leaveners had evolved in 1978, with a mission to be agents of change who would help ‘raise the creative spirit’ within the Quaker Society using the arts.

As we evolved and became a faith neutral charity to encourage engagement with all communities, we changed our name to Leap Confronting Conflict.

Leap remains proud of its Quaker origins and many Quaker values remain in Leap’s everyday operations and the delivery of our training.

BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS APPEAL – DOUBLE YOUR DONATION

As we approach the festive period, we invite you to dedicate your next meeting to celebrate the achievements and impact that the Quaker community has had on young lives for almost 40 years. You may even like to share our resources with your community to consider how they think about and deal with everyday situations of conflict.

We also invite you to support us in our urgent Christmas appeal where every £1 you donate will be doubled through the national campaign ‘Big Give.’

Leap has a target to raise £44,000 between 28 November and 5 December to receive matched funding from the Julia and Hans Rausing Trust. These funds will be crucial to us meeting the unprecedented demand for our specialist conflict navigation programmes across the UK in 2024.

Donate from 28 November so we can continue changing young people’s life trajectories and equip them with the skills they need to navigate inevitable conflict. The Big Give donation gateway is set to go live from 28 November – 5 December.
