Woodcraft Folk’s provision for children & young people is made possible by a wide range of volunteers who support its projects, centres, events and local groups across the UK. To deliver safe, successful activities, and ensure that volunteering with Woodcraft Folk is a mutually rewarding experience, Woodcraft Folk will screen and induct its volunteers, and provide appropriate ongoing support and training to develop their skills.
The purpose of this policy is to:
- Set out how Woodcraft Folk engages volunteers
- Clarify what volunteers can expect from Woodcraft Folk and in return what is expected of them
- Confirm volunteer selection and screening requirements
- Signpost volunteers and volunteer co-ordinators to a range of policies and resources that have been designed to support their engagement within Woodcraft Folk on a local and national level
