Our Work

 

Faith to Faithless was set up to raise awareness of apostasy and support those who struggle leaving religion. We do this by staging the following events and sharing content on social media: 

  1. Panel Discussions, presentations and lectures are held across the UK in universities, public and private organisations. We tackle the uncomfortable conversations around apostasy that can include shunning, disownment, honour-based violence, depression, homelessness and having to rebuild lives. Our network of speakers have left different religions and cults and come from a wide variety of backgrounds. 
  2. Apostate Socials are informal gatherings usually held in museum cafeterias or cafes and led by one of our volunteers. Socials are a fantastic way for apostates to meet like-minded people in a relaxed environment who have left different faith groups. All are welcome and you need not have left a religion to attend.  
  3. Safeguarding Training has been designed to help frontline services and safeguarding professionals understand the harmful consequences of particular cultural and religious practices.The Police, social services, NHS workers, teachers, and charities are encouraged to take this training. 
  4. Peer Support meetings are held fortnightly in central London for up to 8 apostates at a time and led by trained Faith to Faithless facilitators. These are private events with the details on disclosed to attendees.  
  5. Social Media allows us to share regular content on apostasy and leaving religion in real time to a growing domestic and international following. We receive messages from apostates from all of the world daily and do our level best to reply to messages promptly signposting other organisations if we are unable to help.

 

Thanks to Humanists UK supporters our panel discussion events, apostate socials, peer support meetings and some of our public safeguarding training sessions are free of charge to attend.
