Judy Roles

Judy Roles is a Member of Gloucestershire Area Meeting and first attended Quaker Meetings when she worked in London in the 1980s as a producer for BBC Radio 3. The seeds of prison work were sown when she visited Wormwood Scrubs with a tape recorder but it was many years later, after children and a spell as a primary teacher, that she found herself back in prison to support the Quaker chaplain at Gloucester.

Judy Roles works as a Quaker prison chaplain and as a volunteer Restorative Justice facilitator. She serves as clerk to the QPC committee. With a background in music and broadcasting, she still teaches piano and some guitar. She is a Spiritual Director and is very drawn to where Quaker spirituality meets the mystical in other religious traditions.
