Education

Skills for life! We provide activities that enhance the development of children’s character and social skills, and prepare them for effective interactions in multi-cultural settings.

Business Development

Focus on Micro-enterprises. We help minority-led micro-enterprises to transition into sustainable businesses by supporting them in securing public and private sector partnerships and procurements.

Consultancy

We Listen. We Create. We Share. We deliver market and engagement insights that are applicable and practical for clients looking to widen their audience and understand the local market.

Skill-Based Volunteering

Skill-Based Volunteering – We invite inspiring business owners and their employees to join us in tackling social issues, developing individuals and supporting good local causes that grow our community.

Our Mission

Is to support the educational attainment of young people and promoting the entry of minority-led enterprises into the mainstream of economic activity. We do this by designing integrated frameworks instead of “silo” based programmes. We do this to enable meaningful participation from underrepresented groups in education and business. Our approach encourages disadvantaged groups to aspire, apply, enter and succeed

Our Story

Cognitive Paths

… was founded two years ago with the aim to provide a cultural education framework for young people aged 8 – 16 from diverse backgrounds. In our discovery stage, we noticed a need for administrative functions and marketing services. Starting an education program and business support was the answer to our findings.

Combining our lived experiences, cultural heritage and theoretical knowledge led to the formation of Cognitive Paths. Our mission was to create an umbrella organisation that supports informal structures that mainly operate locally and are discouraged by compliance and complicated procedures. We believe that Cognitive Paths can help with the burden, costs and mental capacity required to grow and sustain micro-enterprises to be investable.

Thanks to BSWN: Black South West Network today we where in UK Parliament to promote the importance and social,economic benefit of Social Enterprises. We have seen the political and economic shift because of the research and influence BSWN is doing to support African, Asian and Caribbean businesses, charities and social enterprises. It’s about time there was a well resourced BAME led infrastructure  organisation in the South West.

Featuring a Brazilian barbecue, a full-sized football field and 19th-century Portuguese colonial-style farmhouses and outbuildings, it's a wonder Lenny ever wants to leave home.
