Faith and health survey

The Royal Society for Public Health – a leading UK health charity – is undertaking research to better understand the role of faith and religion in health and wellbeing – and it's looking for your help.

The survey aims to better understand the health and perspectives of people of different religions and those with no religion, so that the RSPH can support different communities to improve their health and wellbeing.

To support them, please share your views in their survey which has been put together with a number of religious, non-religious and secular organisations, including the National Secular Society

By completing the survey, you will also be eligible to enter a prize draw to win one of five prizes of £200.
