Young Friends General Meeting is the national organisation for young adult Quakers in Britain. Their main events are the three General Meetings which take place at Quaker Meeting Houses around the country in February, May and October each year. The weekends are open to anyone aged between 18 and 30-ish who is a Quaker, or interested in Quakerism. They offer an opportunity to meet like-minded people, and to find out more about, and influence, what young adult Friends in Britain do.

In a town a little to the north of London, UK, Watford Quakers have made some short, professional-quality videos in which local Quakers talk about their beliefs and experience. These videos demonstrate something of the range of beliefs held by modern British Quakers, and also explore what it is that draws Quakers together. The website also points to information about their historical involvement with conscientious objection.
