Affiliated groups

Local, student and special interest groups are a great way of raising local awareness of secular issues, running localised campaigns and socialising with like-minded secularists. Below is a list of websites and contact details of groups affiliated to the National Secular Society.

These groups are independent of the NSS, but all support the aims of the society.

To discuss how we can work together to promote secularism, please get in touch.

You can affiliate annually by card, cheque or direct debit.

Special expertise forums

The National Secular Society has a number of special expertise forums. These allow professionals/trainees in/followers of particular fields which intersect with secularism to exchange ideas and be kept up to date with news, meetups and opportunities to contribute or volunteer.

Group membership/affiliation

If your group supports our aims and objectives then why not affiliate to the NSS? Working together we can broaden the secular movement, challenge religious privilege and promote human rights.

For £34 a year, your group can affiliate to the NSS. As well as supporting the secular movement, you'll get resources and the right to attend our AGM. Together we can be a powerful force for change.

If there's a group you know is doing good work around secular issues and you think we need to be aware of them please let us know.
