All our Safeguarding policies, procedures, template forms and resources to help you make sure your groups maintain good safeguarding practice.

Safeguarding at Woodcraft Folk includes everything we do to ensure that children are supported effectively as they grow and develop, as well as how we will respond if a child or young person is believed to be at risk. Woodcraft Folk is part of the National Safeguarding Youth Forum, enabling us to share best practice with the wider youth work sector.

Group leaders and Local Safeguarding Leads can find more detailed operational guidance in the Resources section of Groop or in the Resource Drive (login required).

If you are concerned about child, young person or adult working within our organisation please contact
