Update June 2020

Put your Spring clear out to good use and help us raise funds!

Thursday, 28 May 2020

Have you been using this time in lockdown as an opportunity for a Spring clear out?

If the answer's yes, please think about using those unwanted items to help us raise much needed funds for Woodcraft Folk.

EBay has launched a Big Charity Sell where you can sell your unwanted items and opt for up to 100% of the proceeds to be donated directly to a charity of your choice.

According to eBay UK an estimated £51 million worth of unwanted items have been thrown away during lockdown.

Upcoming Online Programme

Tuesday, 26 May 2020

So far we have enjoyed a wide variety of online sessions with participants ranging from Cardiff to Edinburgh to Exeter of all ages. 

Last weekend we enjoyed the #BigCampIN where many camped in their gardens, living rooms, kitchens and balconies and joined live sessions based on activities we would usually take part in at a 'real' camp. 

In the coming months around our usual national online programme we will have themed weeks and weekends where we will have focused activities. The upcoming monthly themes are:

Discussion about IFM-SEI and international volunteering

Event date: 
4 June 2020 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Online

 This session is aimed at Venturers/DFs/Kinsfolk and will be an introduction to our partner organisations overseas and the work of IFM-SEI. We will also talk about about volunteering opportunities through the European Solidarity Corps programme funded by the EU, with lots of time for discussion and questions. We hope many of you will join!

COVID-19 Appeal

We are adapting our work to reach as many children and young people as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak – but we need your help!

Woodcraft Folk are continuing our role in supporting young people to play games, make friends and learn about big ideas from climate change to social justice through co-operative activities.

Our Development Team has been producing guidance and training for our team of 3,000 volunteers in how to stay safe online and facilitate engaging programme.

Woodcraft Folk Online Programme

Due to government guidance we have had to pause our groups meeting physically for now. We have been working hard on developing online programme nationally and volunteers have been working hard to deliver local online programme so that groups do not miss out on speaking with their friends and engaging in Woodcraft Folk activities. One of the things we are passionate about at Woodcraft Folk is empowering young people and listening to their ideas. We would love to hear from our young members about what they want to see on our online programme.
