Welcome To The North East Humanists

We are the largest organisation representing the non-religious in the North East of England since 1957. Promoting a positive, caring outlook for the one life we have. We campaign for a more humanist and secular society which is caring, open, rational and just. We are a self funded charity (No. 1112965), we receive no government subsidy, we are run through membership fees, donations and hours given by members to help run our charity


Humanists

As Humanists we think for ourselves about what is right and wrong, based on reason and respect for others.

Finding meaning, beauty and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an after life

Looking to science instead of religion as the best way to discover and understand the world

We see that people can use empathy and compassion to make the world a better place for everyone

We as humanists welcome everyone, we all come from the community
