Conscience TAXES FOR PEACE NOT WAR works for a world where taxes are used to nurture peace, not pay for war

We campaign for a progressive increase in the amount of UK tax spent on peacebuilding, and a corresponding decrease in the amount spent on war and preparation for war. We also campaign for the legal right of those with a conscientious objection to war to have the entire military part of their taxes spent on peacebuilding.

Conscience staff and postal address

Conscience has three part-time members of staff: Fay Salichou (Fundraising and Communications Officer), Jonathan Maunders (Campaign Operations Manager) and Karen Robinson (Education Worker).  Fay, Jonathan and Karen work from home.

Our postal address is: Conscience: Taxes For Peace Not War, c/o Peace Pledge Union, 1 Peace Passage, Brecknock Road, London. N7 0BT. United Kingdom.  We are grateful to the Peace Pledge Union for kindly enabling us to have our postal address at their office in London.
