Conscious Social Responsibility

New Leaf was founded to create the space that would enable people to flourish by overcoming the issues that can affect their working life, their relationships, personal well-being and the ability to contribute positively to their community. We are a B Corp achieving a score of 109.9.

We strive each year to do more than simply deliver on our promise to our paying clients; our aim is to work in partnership with local groups and individuals to help build local economic, social and environmental sustainability and make a meaningful contribution to the people, organisations and the environment in and around Somerset. In short, all New Leaf business practices are designed and delivered with a real and genuine determination to benefit both individual clients, their employer, the wider society within which the business operates and to create a positive environmental impact.

We benefit the local community, wider society and the environment by:

  • Maintaining the delivery of high-quality and relevant services that meet the needs of the
    local business community;
  • Establishing a caring and collaborative green community heart that drives all business
    decisions and contributes towards a positive environmental impact;
  • Asking for and valuing feedback and contribution from associates, partners, staff and
    clients;
  • Having a vision and purpose with a strong emphasis on ‘giving back’ to the local
    community and engaging in work with true meaning;
  • Helping businesses and their employees flourish by raising awareness of mental health in
    the workplace and providing relevant services and support.
  • We are well rooted in the South West and support local suppliers and businesses by
    aiming to purchase 50% of equipment and office essentials locally where possible.

New Leaf Legacy

New Leaf Legacy – A force for good

New Leaf has a vision to create a Mental Health Legacy for Somerset, bringing businesses and the community together to make Somerset the most mentally healthy place to Work, Relax and Stay.

As a B Corp we want to use our business to bring about connections with people and the enviroment. To help us along the way we hope to achieve these steps during 2024

❖ Give 5% of our training income to charity
❖ Volunteer 10% of our time in the local community
❖ Demonstrate Sustainable Leadership by inspiring local business with our own B Corp journey

A bright banner for the New Leaf Somerset SME Wellbeing pledge.

We’re celebrating two years of being a B Corp …

B Corp certification for New Leaf marks the culmination of a very significant journey that has taken two years. During this time we’ve had to learn how the B Corp process fits with our small business. Re-thinking much of our operations, measuring and managing our impact and introducing new policies that help keep our actions transparent.

We’ve put our money where our values are
