There are circa 200 charities in the UK linked to the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church. The majority of the charities have 5 Trustees. We have to ask why all these charities only have men as Trustees?
There are 140+ meeting room trusts, 20+ educational trusts, a number of central brethren charities including The Grace Trust, OneSchool Global UK and the Rapid Relief Team. Our research uncovered that there is not one female trustee for any of these charities.
There are Plymouth Brethren men, that are named as a Trustee for more than one charity, in total we believe there are over 600 individual named Trustees for the charities linked to the controversial cult and they are all men.
We have also struggled to find a female managing director in the Brethren member companies, and we believe there are more than 800 trading companies, ran by the members in the UK.
What we did find, was a high number of women working as unpaid volunteers for Campus & Co, the brethren own retail grocery outlets and for the Rapid Relief Team, the brethren catering in a crisis & PR business.
In 2023 you have to question how women are being treated within the Plymouth Brethren community.
