Nature Nurture CIC is an award winning company on a mission to connect urban communities with the nature on their doorstep. We work with the conservation, heritage, health and education sectors to achieve multiple outcomes including improved health & wellbeing, stronger communities and increased environmental awareness and action. In 2016 we achieved a Pride of Reading Award in recognition of our success in engaging people with nature.
Our clients include Reading Borough Council, The National Trust, BBC Learning and numerous schools and nurseries in Reading and West Berkshire. We are currently working in partnership with the National Trust to deliver nature-inspired workshops as part of their ’50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ campaign.
We aim to have a positive impact on children locally and nationally and as well as delivering workshops in the Thames Valley, we provide training and learning resources across the UK.
In 2011 Nature Nurture was granted ‘Community Interest Company’ (CIC) status by the CIC Regulator. We set up the organisation specifically to benefit the community, rather than operating for the benefit of shareholders. As a CIC any ‘profits’ we make are put back into the organisation to further our work. As a social enterprise, Nature Nurture is part of what’s known as the third sector, along with charities, community group and voluntary organisations.
