TIA offers a range of services which include bespoke EDI training; diversity audits and reviews; partnerships on arts and heritage projects; and other bespoke services such as talks and workshops. We believe the inclusion journey starts with listening. We want to help foster an appetite for cultural change where voices that reflect wider, more diverse communities can have their say. Our approach is not about criticism or judgement, but to examine the situation as it is now, and what we can do to support organisations through a process of change.

We can offer a free initial consultation via zoom for up to 30 mins, after which we can create a bespoke quote for each client based on a daily rate.

EDI Training

We can explore approaches to anti-racism, discussing language and concepts such as privilege, bias and allyship, often in a rural setting. We can co-create training on embracing difference, working across a range of protected characteristics. We support organisations and individuals to enable change, create greater equity and embrace difference.

EDI Consultancy

We can co-create Equalities Action Plans with bespoke staff training to embed inclusive practices and facilitate consultations with staff and leadership. We can carry out diversity audits and reviews ensuring language is up-to-date, EDI messaging is clear and images are authentic and representative to meet the needs of contemporary, diverse audiences. We can write reports and make recommendations based on finding and research into best practice in EDI across different sectors.

Arts & Heritage Projects

We can help tell stories of ethnically diverse and other people whose voices have traditionally been ignored, marginalised or hidden in the largely white, homogeneous and often rural landscape of the south west. We seek to create partnerships built on empathy and respect.

Bespoke Services

We can deliver talks and workshops to engage learning about black history and rural racism for children, young people and adults. We seek to engage people critically and creatively in conversations around EDI and have experience producing engaging outcomes such as exhibitions, books, film and podcasts working with artists, producers, performers, poets, writers and educators. Contact us to discuss your needs!



TIA helped us identify specific challenges we face with ED&I within the faculty.  They provided a safe space for frank discussions with students from under-represented groups & presented their findings in an honest & helpful way. They’re now working across the faculty to help us develop strategies to remove barriers & be as welcoming as possible to students/staff from all backgrounds.

On behalf of FARSCOPE CDT, I would like to extend my thanks to Louisa and Louise for delivering such a positive, insightful and thought-provoking session. We have received a number of messages of appreciation from our students, thanking you for your time, expertise and the opportunity to learn more about this crucial and timely issue. I thoroughly recommend The Inclusion Agency to all universities interested in learning how to become more equal, diverse and inclusive. We really look forward to working with The Inclusion Agency more in future.

I just wanted to reflect back my thanks for including us in this EDI training.  It comes at a great time for us as we’re exploring the barriers we’re experiencing here in Devon to building a more diverse and inclusive volunteer/participant recruitment.

Louisa and Louise provided a safe and warm discussion space for us.  This was essential to be able to identify and unblock barriers to our thinking.  Their observations were insightful and very helpful.  We were particularly pleased to be encouraged to start our story in a context that was familiar to us and then to build from there until we had a relevant and practical plan. 
A thoroughly enjoyable and extremely useful session.

Working with TIA has been such a collaborative process and this is important for an organisation like ours.  We set out to engage our colleagues in crafting their own ED&I learning and thanks to the sensitive and expert facilitation of Louise and Louisa, we were able to achieve this.  The result was a programme that created opportunities for teams to explore important and sometimes challenging themes in a healthy and supportive environment.  Louise and Louisa have a wealth of experience and knowledge within their fields, but they are also skilled in drawing on the stories and experiences of participants and through empathy and reflection – using these to enhance learning outcomes.  If you favour a partnership approach to developing confidence and competence round ED&I practice – then I recommend talking to TIA.
