Social and environmental responsibility matters at Oaklin.

Our partnerships

Word Forest

Word Forest are an environmental charity based in the UK, with a focus on combatting climate change by planting trees in the tropics, where they grow up to 10 times faster than anywhere else on the planet.

The team are proud to support local communities in Kenya, founding ‘The Mothers of The Forest’ women’s empowerment group to instigate social action, building classrooms to facilitate education, and providing jobs and permaculture teaching to harvest the trees planted and reduce hunger.

Since 2021 our partnership has grown materially, having attended COP26 together, delivered successful educational events, and shaped the Word Forest Strategy to position the organisation for their next phase of growth. We have also helped plant over 600 trees in Kenya to date, absorbing approximately 160 tonnes of CO2 and providing valuable sustenance for the local community.

Young Minds

We recognise that good mental health plays an important role in young people’s emotional and intellectual growth. We are proud to support some of the most vulnerable populations in our communities through our Young Minds partnership. 

Our partnership has flourished since its inception in February 2018. From holding community fundraising events, and activities in the form of bake sales, Tough Mudder participation and sweepstakes, to helping shape a pricing, delivery and go to market strategy. We aim to ensure everything we do together is impactful, sustainable, and beneficial for those around us.

Paddington Academy

Paddington Academy is an 11-18, non-selective, co-educational secondary school located in Maida Vale in the borough of Westminster. 

Stepping into the world of work can be difficult for most people; this first step can be made even harder for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Through our partnership with Paddington Academy, we provide careers advice and support, work experience, and coaching, for students from diverse backgrounds to improve career opportunities for those who need it most.

We take pride in supporting the young people within our local community and look forward to helping more students achieve their goals in 2023.
