Assemblies for All is a project run by the charity Humanists UK which provides access to high quality, inclusive assemblies for schools across the UK so that every student can experience assemblies which are educational, enjoyable, and appropriate for young people from all backgrounds.
Unlike many existing websites, which offer assemblies which are frequently of a faith-based Christian nature, Assemblies for All prioritises assemblies that are not acts of collective worship and which do not seek to promote one particular religion or belief. The assemblies are inclusive and accessible for all schools, teachers, and pupils, regardless of their religion or belief background.
Assemblies for All features hundreds of interactive, meaningful assemblies made by education professionals from charities like Amnesty, Oxfam and Unicef, to organisations such as UK Parliament and the BBC. Every assembly is organised by theme, key stage, organisation, and, for many of them, by a corresponding event in the calendar. The calendar contains notable dates across the year so that assemblies can be held to mark important events such as International Women’s Day, World Environment Day, and Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Recommend an assembly to us
A wide range of assemblies is already available via Assemblies for All. But there may be many other suitable assemblies created by existing or new providers that we are currently unaware of. If you’re a teacher who would like to let us know about an assembly that you’ve used and would recommend, or if you work for an organisation that provides assemblies and would like us to link to them on Assemblies for All, please get in touch! You can use this recommendation form to suggest an assembly to us. To be considered, an assembly must be inclusive for all students, free to use, and accessed from a website that Assemblies for All can link to. It should not include an act of worship (prayers or hymns). If you have any questions, or if you’re a provider who is updating an assembly that we already link to, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
At Humanists UK, we want a tolerant world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. We work to support lasting change for a better society, championing ideas for the one life we have.
Our work helps people be happier and more fulfilled, and by bringing non-religious people together we help them develop their own views and an understanding of the world around them.
Humanists UK started out in 1896, and since then we’ve always been a growing movement at the forefront of social change. Today we’re trusted by over 85,000 members and supporters and over 70 local and special interest affiliates to promote humanism.
We put humanism into practice through effective campaigning and services, supporting lasting change for happier, more fulfilling lives. Our policies are informed with the support of over 150 of the UK’s most prominent philosophers, scientists, and other thinkers and experts and we seek to advance them with the help of over 100 parliamentarians in membership of the All Party Parliamentary Humanist Group. We bring like-minded people together to make change happen, and we strive to be their voice in public debate, drawing on contemporary humanist thought and the worldwide humanist tradition.
We’ve been conducting non-religious funerals, weddings, and baby-namings for 120 years. Our highly trained celebrants are the best you’ll find anywhere, and they support individuals to create authentic, bespoke ceremonies that put people and their stories at the heart of every occasion.
We also help vulnerable people access like-minded and effective non-religious pastoral support that is specially tailored to work for them. Our trained and accredited non-religious pastoral support volunteers operate across hospitals, prisons, and the armed forces.
Understanding Humanism is a programme run by Humanists UK that provides free, downloadable teaching resources, including lesson plans, classroom activities, presentations, videos, and humanist perspectives on a range of topics studied in school. Free, trained school speakers can be booked to visit your school and answer questions about humanism.
