The Heart of the CFM

Who and what is at the heart of the Children's Fire Movement?

The Structure

The Children’s Fire Movement (CFM) is an arm of buddygroups CIC – a UK registered, non-profit, Community Interest Company.

The aim, with the help of other trained Guides, is to structure the organisation so that any decision making will be informed by a Wisdom Council (comprised of passionate, trained individuals) and ultimately by the Children’s Fire which lies at the very heart of the movement. The Council will form a nucleus that is informed, monitored and supported by the wider CFM Community (that’s any Supporter or Member of the movement who wants their voice to be heard and included in the process).

This structure would mean…

  • transparency.
  • no hierarchy or imbalance of power.
  • that the movement can evolve and adapt whilst always remaining relevant to our communities, society and Life!

PLEASE NOTE:  The movement structure IS NOT exclusively for those trained in the wisdom tradition that informs the Children’s Fire. Anybody, regardless of tradition and cultural background, can become a Supporter or Member of the CFM. Yes, you do currently need to have been trained as a Council Guide in order to be a Council Representative, however the training for this is open to anyone.

If you are a trained Council Guide, or simply feel passionate about the CFM concept and feel drawn to play a key part in the evolution of this project, please do let us know via our contact form.
