Advice and Guidance

How to use the online membership database - guidance

District Membership Secretaries now have access to the online records of members in their District.

This means they can log in to the website at www.woodcraft.org.uk, click through to the Woodcraft Folk membership database, and check their District members for their membership expiry dates, what stage their DBS is at, and update their contact details.

Woodcraft case studies

On this page you'll find an increasing number of stories from around Woodcraft Folk, explaining how groups and members have done things and how you can too.

Guide to editing your group's page

Do you want to give your Woodcraft Folk group its own space on the Woodcraft website? You're in the right place!

Talk to your group about what they'd like to put on the website, and volunteer as your group's Web Manager. Ask your Group Leader to get in touch with us and we'll make sure you have a log in and support to get started.

Additional Camping & Residential Guidance

This detailed guidance was created by volunteers in Cambridge District to support volunteers organising camps and residentials. These overviews of roles and responsibilties on camp may provide a helpful starting point for your own camping or hostel trips.

This guidance should be read on conjunction with the policy and practice documents available on our Safeguarding Portal, especially the Code of Conduct for volunteers and the Camp Checklist.
