Up And Coming Events
Welcome To The North East Humanists
Since 1957, our charity has represented the non-religious in the North East of England. 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 think for themselves about what is right and wrong, based on: reason, logic and clarity of thought, followed by emotional maturity, the introduction of Critical analysis, Honesty, Dissent, Transparency, Inquiry, Debate, Enquiry, Education and Civility (Respect for others)
Humanists find meaning, beauty and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an after life
Humanists look to science not religion as the best way to discover and understand the World, making the World a better place through empathy and compassion
Humanists welcome everyone, from all communities
