About Woodcraft Folk

Woodcraft Folk is the co-operative movement for children and young people. We believe passionately in equality and co-operation and everyone is welcome to join us. 

We help children and young people to understand important issues about the world: the environment, world debt, global conflict and sustainable development. The work we do supports our young members to build a peaceful, fairer world, and to develop their own ideas, their self-confidence and their skills.  We work to ensure that young people’s voices are listened to and amplified, so they can take an active role in shaping our world and their future.

Every week thousands of volunteers and young people meet in school halls, community venues and a host of other places. There they learn about big ideas through fun activities like singing, camping, playing and debating.

We are increasing our use of online tools to deliver our programmes for young people and connect our young members with their peers across the UK and beyond. 

Our aim is to have great fun — But also to develop children’s self-confidence and build their awareness of the society around them.
