FtF provides peer support to our SUs through fortnightly online meetings. We are seeking volunteers who have experienced apostasy, or who can demonstrate a good understanding of the emotional and practical issues that apostates face, facilitate meetings to moderate and provide guidance and emotional support. Three days of training are required for this, which includes Pastoral Care and Peer Support Facilitation which we can provide free of charge.
Faith to Faithless is Humanists UK’s support programme for so-called ‘apostates’ and those who leave high-control religions. The service is led by apostates themselves, who have knowledge and experiences of apostate communities facing serious and systemic issues. These issues range from emotional and physical abuse from family members, friends, and peers in their community through homelessness, shunning, ‘honour-based’ abuse and killings, and systemic failures by statutory organisations to support apostates.
If you are able to help, please register your interest HERE, and our Apostate Support Services Manager, Greg Leonard, will be in touch. If you have any questions please reach out to him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
