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 cheque or bank transfer

You can either:
send a cheque, made payable to South East London Humanist Group, to the Treasurer, Arun Muttreja at 47 Rosenthal Road, London SE6 2BX
make a bank transfer to the Co-op community group account of South East London Humanist Group, ensuring your name is either in the reference field or given as your bank account name. Please email Arun at for the sort code and account no.

(We used to collect membership subs at meetings but Covid has put paid to that for the time being.)

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.
