'Promotes secular humanism, freethought, tolerance, compromise and community in a society dominated for so long by sectarian religious and nationalist ideologies. We provide a forum for debate, discussion and education on the important issues of the day through activities such as our monthly meetings, our all-Ireland Summer School, our Facebook page and our quarterly magazine.'

'Local groups are based in the Borders, Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow and the Highlands (Inverness). These groups offer members (and non-members) a chance to meet other Humanists for interesting talks, discussion, socialising and much more. Membership of Humanist Society Scotland entitles you to attend their meetings, film nights, debates and social occasions.'

'We want a tolerant world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. We work to support lasting change for a better society, championing ideas for the one life we have.  We do this because we’re humanists, people who shape our own lives in the here and now, because we believe it’s the only life we get. Our work helps people be happier and more fulfilled, and by bringing non-religious people together we help them develop their own views and an understanding of the world around them ... Humanists UK’s events programme includes major events around the country designed to raise public awareness of humanism and related topics, including its annual lecture series and annual Convention.'

'Human beings are social animals, and we often feel the need to get together to find support, learn new things, meet new people, and work together for a common cause. Very often we just want to get together to relax and have fun with like-minded people. There are dozens of local humanist groups affiliated to Humanists UK across the country, as well as Humanists UK events and activities taking place that individuals can get involved with in their local communities.'

'The National Secular Society works for the separation of religion and state and equal respect for everyone's human rights so that no one is either advantaged or disadvantaged on account of their beliefs ... The annual Bradlaugh Lecture ... named in recognition of our founder Charles Bradlaugh ...  provides a space for a distinguished speaker to explore a secularist topic in depth.'

'Born in 1885 in Fleet Street, London, the RA has been promoting reason, science and humanism and standing up to irrationalism and religious intolerance ever since. We currently publish New Humanist magazine in print and online.'
