Join the BHA

Joining the British Humanist Association is about expressing your approach to life and supporting us in our work. We are entirely dependent on the generous gifts of our members for our much-needed campaigning, and for giving us the growing constituency that really counts in our lobbying.

You can join online right away.

I want to renew my existing membership

No problem – just login on the right, then go to ‘My Dashboard’.

Can I join as a family?

Yes – family members within the same household are covered under one family membership. Once you’ve signed up for a family membership you can log in and enter your family members’ details. Everybody you register counts as a BHA member, with full voting rights for those 16+, but the household will only receive one copy of our mailings.
