The Commission is a voluntary organisation and relies on charitable donations to cover its modest costs. The money donated is used to support directly the mission of the Commission by raising awareness and campaigning on injustices and inspiring people to take action.  The Commission does not have any regular staff and its office space and related costs are kindly donated by the Diocese of Leeds.

We spent around £11,000 last financial year. Much of our spend is around creating good communication channels within the diocese in order to facilitate awareness-raising and celebration of the actions that so many parishioners already undertake. Our activities included:

  • Issuing a monthly newsletter sharing both what is happening in the diocese and reflections on key national & international issues. During this period we increased our distribution by 30%
  • Organising or providing speakers at events attended by over 1000 people
  • Completely re-developing our website to make it a more useful and accessible resource about social justice for everyone in the diocese
  • publishing resources about Palestine, Fairtrade and Climate Change – as well as a complete pack about poverty in the UK

Could you help by:

  • Paying a regular amount to help the work of the Commission?
  • Making a one-off donation to the Commission?
  • Helping to fund a specific event or project?
  • Leaving the Commission a legacy by making a provision in your will.


A regular donation to the Commission is a fantastic way of helping as it gives us more confidence about the income we are going to receive.

Simply download the Standing Order Form, fill it out, sign it and post it back to us and we will take care of sending it to your bank.


Make a one off donation to the work of the Commission or to a specific project.

An online transfer is easiest but you can send us a cheque instead.

Legacies are a great way to ensure that work for Justice & Peace can continue into the future in the Leeds Diocese.

If you want to discuss this with someone then please email and the Chair or Treasurer will get in touch.

If you are a taxpayer then you can increase the value of any donation by Gift Aiding it. It’s another form but it is very simple to fill out.  Simply return it to the J&P office when you have completed it.
