Join our team to reach new communities in the Eastern Region

Monday, 19 March 2018

The New Groups Project in the Eastern Region was launched in June 2017, and is jointly funded by the Big Lottery FUnd and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. This three-year project will see us grow new groups for young people aged 10-18 in Norwich, Suffolk & Cambridgeshire.

We are now seeking to expand our team for the next phase of this exciting project.  

If you are energised by Woodcraft Folk's values of co-operation and social justice, and have the skills to engage children and young people, to recurit and train new volunteers, or to support a team of staff and volunteers to reach our stretching targets, we'd love to hear from you.
