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. This website [January 2019] does not include our Short Talks or Walks - see https://www.meetup.com/Dorset-Humanists/ instead.

Donate to Dorset Humanists

If you share Dorset Humanists aims and values and appreciate our work and activities, please consider supporting the group by making a donation, and/or joining as a member.

We’re very keen to maintain free entry to most 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 in Dorset. 
  • Dorset Humanists have 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 to public policies such as secular education. 
Dorset Humanists has grown from a handful of members to well over a hundred and fifty 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.
