Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers. For over eighty-five years, we've been working with children and young people to develop their self-confidence and ability to act in society. Volunteers are right at the heart of this work and we're always looking for more, to strengthen our groups and create new ones.

Woodcraft Tool Box

The Tool Box has been developed in consultation with members and has largely been written by members for members, and it  will continue to be developed by members. This tool box is not intended to be prescriptive or to tell you there is only one way to run your group/district. Instead it is a ‘tool box’ from which you can choose appropriate tools. Keep in mind there can be more than one type of tool for each job e.g. different versions of a volunteer role description for a group leader or district fundraiser etc.
