Woodcraft Folk launch Peer Action Collective project to support 10-25 year olds

Woodcraft Folk’s young facilitators are full of excitement following the launch of the Peer Action Collective (PAC). The Peer Action Collective seeks to support 10 to 25-year-olds to contribute to community activities designed to help young people live a life free from violence. The innovative collective is funded by the Youth Endowment Fund, the #iwill Fund (a joint investment between The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport) and the Co-op Group.

Eliza Dolly and Saie Lamont attended the initial Peer Action Collective event to introduce participants to the co-operative values. The pair facilitated a participative workshop helping the Peer Research and Social Action leads develop an understanding of the values and to explore how they may support their work with youth led social action in their communities.

Sadie, Woodcraft Folk, Peer Action Collective leader says that she ‘had a great time at the PAC event. It was really empowering to see the energy in the room”. She went on to say ‘she was really excited to work with other young people from PAC and to see how their projects progress’. Sadie was hopeful for ‘real meaningful change.’ Sadie’s thoughts were echoed by Eliza, who confirmed that she ‘has met some inspiring young people…The atmosphere was electric, filled with powerful opinions and plans!’

Woodcraft Folk’s young facilitators will be supporting regional groups to explore how to adopt a co-operative approach to their work. Woodcraft Folk is seeking a team of young facilitators to support this activity over the next 3 years, for more information, head here. A training and preparation event is scheduled for February 2nd-4th at Cudham. For more information contact
