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, the Church of England, the Muslim Council of Great Britain, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Hindu Council UK, the Sikh Network, the Network of Buddhist Organisations, the Muslim Doctors Association, the Bible Society, the Buddhist Society, City Sikhs, Association of Jewish Women's Organisations, Humanists UK and FaithAction.

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

Your responses will go towards helping organisations within different communities make decisions about which areas of health should be prioritised, such as smoking or alcohol services.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Caitlyn Donaldson, for more information.

Religious dogma shouldn't interfere with your healthcare

We campaign to protect patients from the harm caused by the imposition on them of other people's religious values, and advocate for a secular approach to current healthcare issues. Please consider a donation, from as little as £1 a month, to help support our work in this area.
