Campaign Planning & Approval Process

This page sets out a simple process for agreeing formal organisational support of third-party campaigns, with three variants – ideal, minimum and emergency.

If we are speaking on behalf of the thousands of children and young people who are members of Woodcraft Folk we must ensure that we follow three principles:
