CNWL’s Addiction and Health and Justice Services are trialling a new partnership with Woodley Logistics, a courier company for non-emergency patient transport and package delivery.

Operating in London for the last four years, Woodley Logistics offer job opportunities to young men and women who have previously found themselves involved in or on the cusp of criminality.

Through a dedicated mentoring programme facilitated by their sister organisation Get Real Youth Services, Woodley Logistics want to empower young adults, offering them a chance to rebuild their lives and reintegrate into society.

These goals align with CNWL’s ethos, making this collaboration particularly meaningful. Our services also work closely with these communities, including Health and Justice services. Under the motto ‘Caring Not Judging’, they provide healthcare across a number of prisons and young offender institutes in London and the South of England.

James Pool, Associate Director for Commercial and Innovation said:

“Supporting people trying to turn their lives around is something close to our hearts at CNWL, nowhere more than Health and Justice and Addiction services".   

Underway since April 2024, the partnership has already seen success stories. Benjamin Woodley, Managing Director at Woodley Logistics, shared a story from a young man who was on the verge of involvement with gangs, but through mentoring is now a member of the Woodley team.

See the picture below, which shows a delivery to Arc Milton Keynes, a service that helps people break a cycle of addiction and get them back to a clean and sober lifestyle.

Both CNWL and Woodley Logistics are committed to expanding this partnership, and as this continues we hope to introduce more members of the Woodley team.
