Folder permissions help

I have a shared folder on the server that has multiple sub folders for individual and departmental use.
Currently the users have full  permissions on the folders they are permitted to access which means they can create/delete subfolders and files. Unfortunately they can also delete the main folder which i want to prevent happening.

I want to prevent the users from being able to delete any of the folders but still be able to create/delete files within them.

Can anyone offer me some advice on the best and most secure way to achieve this?
