Become a member

Please join us and become a SELHuG member!

If you become a member, your money will help the group to be active, to support other humanist and secular organisations, and to donate to good causes. You will be able to vote at the AGM and help shape the direction of the group.

Having a bit of money in the bank allows us to attend community open days and festivals and hold public meetings. It allows us to be a partner group of Humanists UK and a member of the National Secular Society. At the end of the year we donate as much as we can to worthy causes: for the last few years we have given regularly to the Uganda Humanist Schools Trust and AFRIL (Action For Refugees In Lewisham).

Cost of Membership

The cost for a year’s membership, which runs from 1 July to 30 June each year:
– Single member £10 p.a.
– Family membership £15 per family p.a.
– Unwaged / Retired £6 p.a.
Some members kindly add donations to their membership fees.

Pay by bank transfer or cash at meetings

You can pay your membership by bank transfer to SELHuG’s Co-op community group account. Please ensure your name is either in the reference field or given as your bank account name so we know who it is from! The account details are:

Bank: Coop
Account name: South East London Humanist Group
Sort code: 08-92-99
Account no: 65748721

When meetings reconvene at New Cross Library, those people attending in person can opt to pay their membership, and attendance sub of £2, in cash. However, the more people who pay by bank transfer, the easier it is for the Treasurer, so please use bank transfer if you can. Many thanks.

We are transparent about how we use our money. Members get to see the accounts at the AGM each July and we vote on any donations that we wish to make that year.
