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
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
