Staying Safe

Membership of Woodcraft Folk is open to everyone who supports the organisation’s aims, from birth to adult. However, we are principally an organisation for children and young people, and every leader has a responsibility to put the needs of our young members first.
Volunteers have a legal responsibility to protect the safety and welfare of the young people they come into contact with.
