About us:

Welcome to the HP website. Our party is a Progressive Party based on the principles of New or Universalist Humanism. These principles can be summarised as:

• Putting the value of all human life as the central value and concern, higher than money or institutions.

• Promoting non-violence as the only way to achieve results

• Fighting discrimination in all its forms; racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, etc.

• Encouraging the continuous development and free distribution of human knowledge.

• Freedom of beliefs and ideas

We are developing our party from the grass roots. In broad terms our policies favour:

• The needs of the workforce before the needs of the banks and speculators,

• Real representative democracy before formal democratic models,

• Decentralisation of power before centralisation in centrally controlled government institutions,

• Anti-discrimination before discrimination,

• Liberty before oppression.

  • Buy Gold

    Our priorities are for health, education and security and the equality of opportunities for everyone. The foundation for these policies has been expounded in the humanist statement.

We are an organisation of volunteers and welcome all those who share our ideals and objectives. We are in search of people to join us who can help to establish the Humanist Party at a grassroots level throughout the country. Our aim is to participate in elections at all levels of government. If you would like to be a candidate in your area and need help, please contact us.
