Come and work with one of the longest serving and most established youth movements in the world!

We are recruiting for a range of volunteering roles at our residential centres.

Volunteering with Woodcraft Folk is a chance to develop skills, improve wellbeing, try something different, explore new experiences, meet like-minded people and make an impact through value driven work.

Through our centres, weekly groups nights, projects, campaigns and camps we support children and young people to take the lead and change their world. We’re currently looking for volunteers who share our passion and want to be part of an exciting community with a wide range of opportunities at our centres available. Our centres are situated in stunning locations and areas of natural beauty, those volunteering onsite can enjoy getting close to nature with a work view that does not disappoint. 

Being a volunteer at Woodcraft Folk means being part of a thriving community of passionate and dedicated people. It’s about developing skills, helping children and young people engage with the world around them and, meeting new people and most importantly, having fun!

Everyone welcome

Woodcraft Folk’s work with children and young people is only possible with the support of a diverse range of volunteers.

There’s a million and one ways to get involved at our centres, you don’t even have to live locally to one to volunteer. Whether you want to support onsite with ground work or are keen to get stuck into helping with admin work, we have a role to fit everyone.

We are an inclusive organisation and encourage everyone to apply to volunteer with us. No experience necessary! No matter what your skills or background they’ll be something for you where you can make a difference!
