enable social impact through connectivity

Cognitive Paths facilitates cross-sector collaboration to improve leadership perspective in society.

Make change through Social Impact Projects

Cognitive Paths supports micro-enterprises transitioning from informal to the formal economy so that there’s decent work for all.

We listen. We Create. We share.

Cognitive Paths gathers and formalises unique cultural knowledge to share new perspectives and promote inclusive growth for everyone.


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.


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.

We say our own heroes and histories are not told enough to children.
We say we don’t see many black teachers in schools.

Do you remember those time when we had no black history month? shorturl.at/nJKM4 In school, there was no mention of #CarterWoodson, no hearing of #HurrietTubman, no learning of #MarySeacole, #FrederickJone or any celebration for the achievements and contributions of the black race. Now a new curriculum is set to be roll out across Bristol schools to represent black history. We encourage all educational workers, schools and organizations get involved to make a change. Contact us on education@cognitivepaths.co.uk for more information and make your contribution in every which way! Our next generation deserves to grow up with cultural self-esteem and pride. ...
