Who we are
Lancashire Secular Humanists provide a forum for people of Lancashire to meet and discuss social, political, religious, philosophical, scientific and artistic issues.
LSH is affiliated to the British Humanist Association, which represents the interests of ethically-concerned but non-religious people; and the National Secular Society, which challenges religious privilege and promotes separation of church and state.
Committed to human rights, democracy, equality and mutual respect, LSH, along with the BHA and NSS, works for an open and inclusive society with freedom of belief and speech.

We make our decisions using available evidence and by assessing the outcomes of our actions, not on any dogma or sacred text.
