Woodcraft Folk and political activity

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Woodcraft Folk members are playing an active role in the large public demonstrations in 2010 and 2011. Just like in 2003 the movement's high profile in civil society offers us the prospect of reaching out to new adults and children. However, as we become more visible, so we must expect our position to be questioned - so here are some questions answered.

The document downloadable below answers the questions:

  • Why are we taking part in the anti-cuts movement?
  • Are we indoctrinating children?
  • Should we be political?
  • What does the Charity Commission say about political activity?
  • Isn't our primary purpose to educate and empower?
  • Can we protest against the BNP or other parties?
  • How should we respond to media enquiries?
  • Are there meeting points for demonstrations?
