Join the NSS

Join us from as little as £2 per month. Make a stand for fairness and individual rights. Challenge the unfair influence of religious groups and ideas. Unite with other secularists to promote freedom of and from religion, in Britain and abroad.

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 and state. Your membership will also give you the chance to stay up to date with secularist news and shape NSS policy.

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.
