Men’s Health and Wellbeing Event in Dorset

‘Boys, Braves and Bonfires’ is a new Dorset support network run ‘by men for men’ which aims to grow and become a national organisation.
We launch this in recognition of the growing agenda for men’s health and wellbeing.

Francis Raven-Vause who leads the group has had a varied career in agriculture, the motor and leisure sector and has travelled extensively meeting people from all walks of life. A Master Practitioner of NLP, he found himself specialising in coaching people dealing with stress, anger and depression-related disorders.

“I spotted a growing requirement to help and support men at times of personal transition. The ‘Boys, Braves and Bonfires’ groups will be cross cultural and diverse, non-denominational and inclusive” says Francis.

Who should attend?

We aim to help men develop and improve career, relationships, their friendships and reduce emotional isolation during times of transition, such as:

  • becoming a husband, a father, an elder
  • when facing divorce,
  • acting as a carer
  • during bereavement
  • children leaving home
  • redundancy
  • career organisation

and any other pivotal times.



Course Overview

‘Boys, Braves and Bonfires’ has been designed to be a safe and supportive space where men bond whilst undertaking fun activities for example playing the didgeridoo, foraging, hurdle making, wood and wilderness crafts, sporting events and walks.

However, a group might choose to tackle a community interest project as members’ interests drive organic growth.
