About us

New Caledonian Woodlands is a charity and a social enterprise with two primary aims rooted at our core: to encourage environmental sustainability and to support people to improve their mental well-being.

We deliver ‘planet projects’ focused on encouraging people to migrate towards greener lifestyles and ‘people projects’ focused on supporting adults experiencing mental ill-health and social isolation towards improved well-being, more active lives and employment.

Whether planting new woodland or managing old ones, making furniture from trees felled by hand, pressing hand-picked apples for juice or learning more about our environmental impact and how to reduce it, New Caledonian Woodlands is busy in the woods most days – working with over 1,200 people per year.
