Stop faith-based admissions
Help us resist plans to open new faith schools in England that can select 100% of their places on the basis of religion, discriminating against children and promoting social and racial divisions in our communities.
State-funded schools should be open to all children, without regard to religion, and we urgently need MPs to oppose the Government’s plans.
Write to your MP urging them to oppose faith-based admissions.
Support humanist marriages
Humanist marriages are legally recognised in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but humanist couples in England and Wales face discrimination and are forced to have a separate civil marriage.
We want the UK Government to end the inequality faced by humanists by bringing the law in line with Scotland and Northern Ireland, giving legal recognition to humanist marriages in England and Wales.
Write to your MP to end humanist marriage inequality.
End faith schools
Donate today to fund and resource Britain’s only dedicated campaigner against faith schools.
Help us defend the rights of children and teachers by campaigning to end state religious schools, religious discrimination in admissions, and compulsory collective worship, and for the introduction of comprehensive relationships and sex education in all schools.

Ban creationism in schools
The new curriculum for Wales lacks specific teaching about evolution before ages 14-15, and contains zero safeguards against teaching creationism as science.
We’re asking the Welsh Government to ban the teaching of creationism, intelligent design, and other pseudoscientific theories as evidence-based, and ensure that all primary pupils are taught evolution.
Sign our petition to ensure Wales’ new curriculum bans creationism and teaches evolution.
Support Paul Lamb
After decades of suffering and pain, Humanists UK member Paul Lamb needs a change in the law in order to end his life in a manner and at a time of his own choosing. That’s why he’s taking a legal case to change the law on assisted dying.
Paul’s case is the strongest case to come before the UK courts in many years – with real potential to change the law where past claimants have failed. We must act now in his support.
We will back Paul’s fight at every stage. Will you?
End compulsory worship
Did you know the UK is the only country in the world to impose Christian worship in state schools?
Current law in England and Wales requires all state-funded schools to conduct daily acts of ‘worship’ of a ‘Christian character’.
We’re calling on the Government to replace compulsory worship with inclusive assemblies for all.
Sign our petition and back inclusive assemblies for all.
