A Rewarding Experience

Woodcraft Folk’s work with children and young people is only possible with the support of a diverse range of volunteers. Some work with our young members at our weekly groups, and others provide valuable support behind the scenes or help deliver our UK-wide and international projects.

Volunteering with Woodcraft Folk is a chance to build your own skills and meet like-minded people. Whether you volunteer as part of a one-off event or develop a long-term link with a group in your area, your support will enable young people to have unique and life-enhancing experiences.
