The National Secular Society is Britain’s only organisation working exclusively towards a secular society. Founded in 1866, we campaign from a non-religious perspective for the separation of religion and state and promote secularism as the best means to create a society in which people of all religions or none can live together fairly and cohesively. The NSS sees secularism, that is, the position that the state should be separate from religion, as an essential element in promoting equality between all citizens.
The British Humanist Association (BHA) is the national charity working on behalf of non-religious people who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We want a world where everyone lives cooperatively on the basis of shared human values, respect for human rights, and concern for future generations.
Being affiliated to the BHA based in London, the Cardiff Humanist Group attempts to fulfil a need for personal contact etc for other Humanists, freethinkers, agnostics and other atheists, within Cardiff and surrounding areas of South East Wales
Founded in Amsterdam in 1952, the International Humanist and Ethical Union is the sole world umbrella organisation embracing Humanist, atheist,rationalist, secularist, skeptic, laique, ethical cultural, freethought and similar organisations world-wide.
We campaign to make admissions and recruitment policies in all state-funded schools free from discrimination on grounds of religion or belief. We want schools to follow an objective, fair and balanced syllabus for education about religious and non-religious beliefs. We want accountability under a single inspection regime for Religious Education, Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship. We believe all schools should provide their pupils with inclusive, inspiring and stimulating assemblies in place of compulsory acts of worship.
Raise awareness within British Muslims and the wider public, of democracy particularly ‘secular democracy’ helping to contribute to a shared vision of citizenship (the separation of faith and state, so faiths exert no undue influence on policies and there is a shared public space).
