The Defence Humanists is a growing body of servicemen and women, their families, veterans, and civilian members of the Ministry of Defence, who seek to represent the interests of all those who subscribe to non-religious beliefs.

Defence Humanists forms an autonomous but integral part of the British Humanist Association (BHA). As part of its broader agenda, the British Humanist Association works to enhance the public understanding and appreciation of secularism. We do this by identifying and publicising key instances where people are unfairly privileged or discriminated against because of their religion or belief or where principles of human rights or equality are compromised. We then engage in effective advocacy to influence public opinion, government policy, legislation, and case law in order to resolve these situations.

The British Humanist Association is the national charity working on behalf of non-religious people who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We promote Humanism, support and represent the non-religious, and promote a secular state and equal treatment in law and policy of everyone, regardless of religion or belief.

The BHA is a registered charity in England and Wales (no. 285987) and depends on donations and legacies from its members and supporters to carry out its work. You can join or donate or register for our free e-bulletin online.
