The Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) is the primary Quaker organisation that connects Friends together across the globe.
The FWCC was established in 1937 and today represents Friends from over 87 countries. It is split into four sections serving Africa, the Americas, Asia & the West Pacific, and Europe & the Middle East. The FWCC’s World Office is in London at Friends House and its mission statement is:
“Answering God’s call to universal love, FWCC brings Friends of varying traditions and cultural experiences together in worship, communications, and consultation, to express our common heritage and our Quaker message to the world.”
Since 1948, the FWCC has had ‘consultative’ status with the United Nations and is responsible for the two Quaker UN Offices in Geneva and New York.
