Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

If you share our aims and values, and appreciate our work and activities, please consider supporting the group by making a donation, or joining as a memberMembers have additional benefits such as participating in determining group activities, discounted entry to our special premium events and electing committee members. Annual Membership is great value at only £12 (Students £5).


We’re very keen to maintain free entry to the vast majority of our events, and we do rely on our members and supporters for a reliable source of income to fund our activities. 

Here are just a few reasons why Dorset Humanists is worth supporting:

  • Dorset Humanists is the only group locally which provides a dedicated forum and activities for non-religious people, compared to hundreds of churches for the religious. 
  • We’ve assisted in negotiations to get secular, non-religious philosophies such as Humanism into local RE syllabuses across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset, so children can learn to think more broadly about religion and philosophy. 
  • Our events attract media attention and give a voice to people who want a more enlightened approach on public policies such as secular education. 
Dorset Humanists has grown from a handful of members to well over a hundred in the last few years. With your continued support we’d like to maintain our growth momentum so we can have an even bigger impact in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset.
