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.

Humanist Support for Prisoners

A presentation by Amy Walden, Probation Officer HMP Winchester

Religious prisoners are able to practice their religion whilst in custody, providing them with much needed emotional and moral support from chaplains, time out of their cells, and a chance to form a network of friends. But what if you are not religious?

Amy Walden is the inspiration behind a positive new pilot project offering equivalent support to non-religious prisoners. In this presentation she considers the inequalities faced by the non-religious in prison, and explains how the British Humanist Association and HM Prison Service are seeking to address them. Despite considerable initial opposition, the pilot is proving to be a great success and it is hoped it will be rolled out across the prison estate.

Join us to learn about this exciting new pilot project aiming to transform the lives of Britain’s non-religious prisoners
