amazing! But it’s hard to be young in the current climate: demonised by the media, burdened by increasing costs for education and faced with unemployment rising at a frightening rate. Many feel they are not valued and have no stake in society.

Since 1925, we’ve offered youth-led activities for girls and boys – giving urban children and young people access to the countryside, and helping them learn and develop through co-operative activities.

These skills mean that our young people go on to be the next generation of active citizens, trades unionists and co-operators.

Woodcraft Folk relies on donations to support the volunteers who run our weekly group nights, camps and activity weekends for children and young people.

I would like to donate:

You’ll be part of our friendly, co-operative community, we’ll send you regular email updates and The Courier, a termly newspaper produced by our young members.
