Rochdale Woodcrafts


About us
We are a unique progressive educational movement for children and young people – both girls and boys - designed to develop self-confidence and activity in society, with the aim of building a world based on equality, peace, social justice and co-operation.
Through its activities, Woodcraft Folk tries to give its members an understanding of important issues such as the environment, world debt and global conflict, with a key focus in recent years being sustainable development.

Unlike other traditional youth organisations, we do not have a set uniform; instead our members choose to wear clothing such as our “woodie hoodies” or t-shirts designed by young people from our organisation.

The Woodcraft Folk was established as an educational movement and charity in 1925, and was run entirely by young people. We operate in England, Scotland and Wales.
