Why partner with Forests With Impact?

Rehabilitation with purpose

Forests With Impact offers a unique approach to rehabilitation. By establishing commercial tree nurseries within prisons, we provide prisoners with valuable skills and training in horticulture, nursery management, and environmental conservation.

Our programme instils a sense of purpose, responsibility, and pride, equipping individuals with the tools they need to rebuild their lives and contribute positively to society.

Environmental Restoration

Through our tree nursery programme, we promote the restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity. By growing and planting trees, we contribute to combatting climate change, improving air quality, and creating habitats for wildlife.

By partnering with Forests With Impact, your prison can play a pivotal role in addressing environmental challenges and meeting sustainability goals.

Community Engagement and Resilience

Forests With Impact goes beyond prison walls. We actively engage with local communities, creating opportunities for shared learning, collaboration, and skills development.

By extending the benefits of our programme to the community, we foster a sense of connection, support local economies, and contribute to community resilience.

Tangible Social Impact

Partnering with Forests With Impact allows your prison to make a tangible difference. Our programme helps reduce reoffending rates by equipping prisoners with employable skills and offering a pathway to employment upon release.

By supporting prisoners’ rehabilitation and reintegration, we aim to prevent future victims of crime and create safer communities.
