A donation to the National Secular Society will help us to promote freedom, fairness and individual rights. It will help us to continue campaigning, lobbying, speaking out and challenging unfair laws and practices in Britain and abroad.

We receive no funding from government or outside bodies – our work is wholly supported by our members, people like you who share our belief in the urgent need for a public life free from religious concerns.

A direct debit is the most effective way to support the NSS – it allows us to predict how much money we will have available, and also cuts down on administration costs, enabling us to increase the scale of our activities.

What our members say

  • I discovered the NSS while studying Politics at school, researching pressure groups. I was particularly interested in secularism, always held similar beliefs, and decided to join to promote the cause of religious freedom and equality.

    Edward, Wiltshire
  • The privilege provided to religion within our society is intolerable. Secularism is being cynically attacked to preserve the status quo, and withdrawing religious privilege regarded as persecution. My local MP defends religious schools as he feels he has the right to send his children to a school with a Christian ethos – some local parents cannot find a non-religious school and have to fight for their children's rights. The NSS is effectively working to address these inequalities.

    Dalis, Bucks
  • "As a retired head teacher, I have always been concerned by the requirement of schools to provide a daily act of collective worship. I read about the NSS campaign to abolish this requirement and decided to add my voice."

    Ray, Tyne & Wear
  • The redacting of exam questions and the scandal of gender separation at British Universities convinced me to join the NSS, standing up for rationalism, and civilised behaviour, unafraid to stick its head above the parapet and expose hypocrites, religious zealots and apologists

    Jonathan
  • I joined to show that being an NSS member is compatible with being a Muslim. I think the NSS would benefit from having more members of faith. At present, just as many believers fail to understand what secularism means, many who do not practice a religious faith fail to understand the provisions that a just society needs to make for people who do.
