New Leaf Good Wood Project
Established in three prisons to date; prisoners create bespoke products from recycled pallets and wood for New Leaf to sell. This is an innovative, therapeutic and creative work-based intervention to engage serving prisoners pre-release whilst feeding in relevant vocational qualifications such as construction labourer cards (CSCS cards).
Prisoners love the creative and environmentally friendly project, especially as it gives them complete autonomy in the design and manufacture of products which we then sell. We also provide holistic support whilst they are in custody and when they are released into the local community, they are then invited to engage with our training and employment opportunities on release.
