Woodcraft Folk gives young people the chance to explore big ideas and learn about their world, through activities that are rooted in our aims & principles.

Joining a weekly group will help your child make new friends, grow in confidence, learn new skills, develop their views and stand up for the things they believe in.

We work hard with our volunteers to make Woodcraft Folk a safe place for our young members. Volunteers leading or supporting our groups have undertaken screening checks, including a DBS or PVG check as appropriate. Each group has a named safeguarding lead to act as a point of contact for any concerns.

We believe that being part of Woodcraft Folk can benefit all young people. We strive to make sure our activities are accessible for every young person who wants to take part. We seek to keep activity costs low, and offer financial support to young people where we can.

Activities are designed to meet the needs and aspirations of the young people in the group, and will take account of any medical needs, disabilities or learning needs. For more information, contact your local group co-ordinator.
