The TREE Programme

TREE stands for Training, Representation, Equality and Engagement.These are all things Woodcraft Folk aims to give young members. The more fully young people can participate in the organisation, the stronger our future will be.

The TREE Programme was funded by the Big Lottery over a period of five years (2009 – 2014) with the task of developing youth participation at all levels of Woodcraft Folk throughout England. We focused on making sure young people's experience of Woodcraft Folk - from playing games at a weekly group night to sitting on our national trustee board - was as good as possible, and that they could act on the issues that are important to them within the movement and outside of it.  

Woodcraft Folk has always brought children, young people and adults together to learn about and act on social issues, since we were established in 1925 by 19 year-old Leslie Paul. At local and national level, we try to create an atmosphere of equality and co-operation where people of any age can get involved in making decisions, running activities and influencing the movement.
