Woodcraft Folk’s board of trustees is know as General Council. It has an essential role to play in the governance of the organisation, and in ensuring that Woodcraft Folk’s resources are used responsibly to achieve our charitable objectives.
Most members of General Council are elected by representatives of Woodcraft Folk groups and districts. There are reserved places for trustees aged under 25. This means that young people’s voices are always represented on the Board.
We support young people to participate, take the lead, and make decisions about their programme and how the organisation is run. We empower them to become active citizens locally and globally.
