About Woodcraft Folk

Woodcraft Folk is the co-operative children and young people’s movement. 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. For example, things like the environment, world debt, global conflict and sustainable development. The work we do also helps them to conceive how to build a peaceful, fairer world.  We believe passionately that young people’s voices should be listened to and amplified. That they should have an active role in shaping our world and their future.

About Woodcraft folk - children painting a sign in a tent

Outside of the current lockdown, 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. At the moment we are finding ways to continue this work online.

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