Cultivating Belonging in Bath
We want to see spaces and places that are, first and foremost, safe for everyone. Places that are open, honest and equitable. Places and spaces that allow room and support for all to develop, grow and thrive authentically.
Our aim is to cultivate belonging in Bath and the surrounding area through co-creation, collaboration, conversation and learning.
We work with organisations to support learning and growth, to facilitate organisational and structural change. And we work with individuals to ensure that the true barriers to belonging are overcome.
What We Do
B in Bath is a Social Enterprise. By attending and commissioning training and consultancy with us, you are directly supporting the communities we work with.

We are very excited and proud that our Founder, Renée Jacobs, has been awarded a place on the The Bath and North East Somerset Social Entrepreneurs Programme, led by the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) in partnership with 3SG. It is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund, which is managed by the West of England Combined Authority within the Bath and North East Somerset region.
The 31st March is Trans Day of Visibility. It is an important day to remind us all to take action and fight for Transgender people. It’s a day to raise awareness of the discrimination they face everyday. It’s a day for transgender and non-binary people to have the opportunity to be seen positively and have their voices amplified (although we should be striving for this to be possible every day).
