Since 1988 this established charity (formal title The Association of Talking Friends, Charity Number 299656) has circulated recordings of Quaker publications to visually impaired Friends and attenders in Britain Yearly Meeting. The cost to subscribers is kept to 50% of the print version

Membership of Talking Friends is by annual subscription to any or all of these Quaker periodicals:

  • the Friend (published weekly)
  • Friends Quarterly
  • Towards Wholeness (published three times a year)

All recordings are supplied digitally on returnable USB sticks

 We can supply a portable player, seen here, for listening to the recordings

We also record a number of Quaker books


We will use the information we hold on our subscribers ONLY for the legitimate activities of Talking Friends

We will not pass this information to any other source without the agreement of our subscribers
