Quakers in Criminal Justice holds a residential weekend conference every year, usually in February.
The venues are chosen for their peaceful and spiritual atmosphere, which helps people to relax and communicate at a deep level. Typical venues include Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham, The Ammerdown Centre in Somerset and Hinsley Hall in Leeds.
