B in Bath

Cultivating belonging in Bath

Our Mission

We aim to build a support system in which people can access advice, training and support, while also promoting collaboration, community building and integration.
We empower and encourage individuals and organisations to cultivate belonging; working together to create an environment where all can feel safe, considered and included.


We see belonging a powerful idea and a force to create positive, inclusive, change. Through collaboration, integration and community, we can create an environment where everyone can thrive.

We are passionate about supporting and empowering individuals from UK minority backgrounds, those from low-income backgrounds and LGBTQ+ individuals in the workplace, as business leaders and business owners, in spaces for culture and education.

There is a lot of organisations and individuals to consider when thinking about what is commonly called “equality, diversity and inclusion”. We frame that thinking with the idea of belonging, acknowledging that these conversations and changes are challenging, and that they can’t be successful without the involvement of us all.
