Humanist Society Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC026570

Humanist Society Scotland seeks a future in which:

The worth, dignity and autonomy of every person is respected and individual freedom is balanced with social responsibility and a duty of care for future generations

Scottish civic institutions are democratic and human rights are developed, embedded and protected;

Ethical and moral problems are addressed with compassion, knowledge and reason;

No belief system (religious or not) should have, nor expect, privilege in the democratic process. In effect we seek a secular Scotland.
