Safeguarding: relevant procedures and practices

Safeguarding our members is very important to Woodcraft Folk, and there are many useful documents to help us work safely and respond well to any concerns. Below are the information and procedures that guide our safeguarding, and useful forms for local groups and Districts to implement good practice.

Example group register

One of the main things a Woodcraft Folk group needs is a register to record the names and subs of each person attending each week. Below you can download an example from Stroud Valleys Woodcraft Folk. 

Child Registration Form OR Health Consent form

  • Child registration form is to be completed by a parent or carer as part of a child's induction to a group. 
  • Event specific Health & Consent forms which can be used for camps, one day events or projects. Forms should be completed in advance of taking children to events who you're taking responsibility for. 

Woodcraft Folk Expense Claim Form

Below you can download Woodcraft Folk's expense claim form, which should be used to claim reimbursement for any expenses you've incurred at national Woodcraft activities, where you know reimbursement is available. 

Under 16 membership

Young people under 16 can become members of national Woodcraft Folk for free. Becoming a member means you'll receive the monthly e-newsletter, an invitation to Annual Gathering (the Woodcraft Folk AGM) and lots of other news and opportunities from around the Folk.

Template Risk Assessment
