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
- career organisation
and any other pivotal times.
‘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.
