Reasonable Adjustment Guidance

Woodcraft Folk aims to be open and accessible to all, we have a vision of increasing and widening participation to our groups, camps and activities centres.

Children and young people will not be excluded from Woodcraft Folk activities based on their ability or support needs, neither will they be excluded based on the ability/availability of their parent or carer to support group activities.

This guidance document supports leaders on how they can make changes or adjustments to ensure that children and young people with a disability can access Woodcraft Folk activity. 

Access Awards

General Council launched an Access Award for groups in 2008, which includes a self-assessment of a group’s physical access. The materials also include activities to run during group nights to support young people to consider access issues.
