Humanists UK has been invited to participate in the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in Westminster for the first time, following many years of campaigning effort. Humanists UK and its armed forces section Defence Humanists will be represented at the ceremony by Chief Executive Andrew Copson. They have today welcomed the move towards a more inclusive approach, which recognises the contribution of non-religious personnel to the armed forces and the increasingly prominent place of humanism in British public life.

The launch event for Humanists in Government was due to take place on Monday, 22 Oct 18 in London but has been postponed.
It will be rescheduled for later in the year or early next year and further details will be published here when they become available.

Great news! We will be holding our annual conference and AGM on 3-4 May 2018 at Amport House, Andover.
We have planned a great schedule of talks and discussions, including representatives from LGBT Humanists, Faith to Faithless, Service D&I Desks and the MOD Networks lead.
We are very happy to have Humanists UK Chief Exec Andrew Copson on board, and we will cover topics ranging from feminism to the experience of leaving a high control religion, alongside ethical thinking workshops. We will also of course discuss our ongoing work on Remembrance, pastoral support, and how we can develop our network.
Humanists UK will be sending out an email to all DH members with instructions of how to register. For those within MOD all the administrative details can be found in DIN 2018DIN01-044.
