Advice and Guidance

Woodcraft Folk and political activity

Woodcraft Folk members are playing an active role in the large public demonstrations in 2010 and 2011. Just like in 2003 the movement's high profile in civil society offers us the prospect of reaching out to new adults and children. However, as we become more visible, so we must expect our position to be questioned - so here are some questions answered.

Woodcraft Folk KP support website

South West Woodcraft Folk have created a website full of useful checklists, information and handy tips based on their KP training weekend held in February 2011.

Gift Aid guidance for District Treasurers

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid enables charities like Woodcraft Folk to claim back the tax paid by donors on money they donate to the charity. If you are a UK taxpayer, every £10 you donate could be worth £12.50 to Woodcraft Folk.

Donors need to complete a simple declaration form with their name, address, amount donated and confirming that they have paid enough tax on the money they are donating and wish the charity to be able to claim it back as Gift Aid.

Transition Support - welcoming new group members

 

Take a look at the PDF below if you want ideas on how to help young people move from one age group to the next. Transition Support Ideas has activities for groups to do before, during and after the transition to try and make it as smooth as possible, and generally keep groups within a district in touch with each other. If you've got any good ideas to add to it, send them to tree@woodcraft.org.uk - we'd love to hear them. 

Annual Financial Return

Thank you for your work on the District finances over the year. Being a local treasurer is a vital role both for your District and the national organisation and we greatly appreciate the work that you put in. We say this particularly now just as we are sending you the Annual Financial Return covering the period 1st Jan-31st Dec 2019, which we ask you to complete early in the new year. You may wish to do some tidying of the accounts now in preparation for the year end eg banking, just when others are winding down for the holiday period.
