Woodcraft Folk Communities guidance

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.

Visit www.DreamBigAtHome.uk

All Woodcraft Folk groups and Districts now have an online Community where they can have discussions, share news, resources and images, and maintain a group calendar of events.

View a short introduction to Woodcraft Folk Communities here.

View the full Guidance on Woodcraft Folk Communities here. We suggest opening it in a new tab, so you can navigate to your Communities from here and read the guidance as you go along. Please read it to the end - it's not long and it's really useful. If your browser can't display the presentation, you can download a text-only version of the Guidance from the foot of this page.

To ask for help using Communities, contact Folk Office or email info@woodcraft.org.uk.

Notes for Communities Managers

(For Woodcraft groups, this defaults to the Group Contact; for Woodcraft Districts, this defaults to the District Contact)

  • Use the 'public' tick box by any individual post to publicise it on the group or District's public page. Please make sure it doesn't contain any personal or sensitive information people wouldn't want shared. Posts will be displayed with the most recent at the top. Go to 'edit' above any post to find the 'Public' tick box.
  • Use the About Us section for any descriptions of the Community that are useful background / introductions to it - for new members and also to set as 'public' for visitors to the website. When members have posted history, descriptions etc in About Us that would be suitable for the public, you can use the Edit tab to make them 'public' at the top of the Community's public page. 
  • You can share the admin of the Community with other individual members: go to 'members' in the pale blue box, left column, and use 'Admin: Create' to select the member(s) you've agreed to share admin with. They can do anything you can do, you'll just be the main contact for the Community. 
  • In a Woodcraft group or District Community, members should be full members of national Woodcraft Folk. Information on membership and the relevant forms are in the Resources section and District Membership Secretaries have online access to membership records. Membership is free for under 16s! 
  • Please be aware of safeguarding issues in the digital Community as you would in a face to face community. If you or anyone in the group has concerns about someone's behaviour or safety, you can report it to the Lead Safeguarding Officer, Debs, at deborah.mccahon@woodcraft.org.uk.
