Becoming a member of the National Secular Society is a declaration of your support for the separation of the state from religious institutions. Make a stand for freedom, fairness and human rights by adding your voice to the call for a secular society.
We receive no funding from government or outside bodies – our campaigning is wholly supported by our members, people like you who share our belief in the urgent need to separate religion from education, politics and public life in general.
You can use this page to join the National Secular Society, start a Direct Debit, make a donation or renew your existing membership.
Start a Direct Debit
Starting a direct debit is the most effective way to join the NSS or renew – 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.

"Secularism gives us a fair and inclusive society where everyone has an equal voice as part of democracy, and no one group is given more weight and importance over another. I do hope in my lifetime I see Britain become a truly secular nation."

I think all groups, religious, atheistic or agnostic, have enough common ground to be able to live together in harmony under secular systems of governance, law, welfare, education, etc.

"The general attitude of hostility towards secularism which is widely equated with being a 'militant' finally convinced me that the time had come to be a more active supporter of the cause."
