Representation Matters Ltd

Representation Matters is an Educational Consultancy helping leadership teams to transform their schools into an environment where there is a strong sense of belonging. We believe that “until society recognises everyone, the question will always be do I belong”. Therefore, we ensure that we weave lived experiences and authentic voices into our work. Working from this perspective means that we can connect with hearts and minds. Whilst we would love to be experts in everything…we are not; however, we are constantly evolving and learning and sharing the knowledge with the clients that we meet along the way. That is the beauty of this work.

So how do we do it?

With our wonderful team of associates who live with the 9 protected characteristics, as well as wider factors that prevent individuals from feeling like they belong at their place of work, such as economic background. We provide schools with the opportunity to hold the mirror to their practice; through immersive training and dynamic advice and consultancy. We will help schools create a culture of inclusion so that members of the school community no longer need to question if they belong.
