"Only dead fish swim with the stream."

NotDeadFish is a Social enterprise helping public benefit organisations to swim against the flow - with particular expertise in school and third sector collaboration.

We provide contemporary advice and direct support from professionals who have experience working across charity, public sector and profit-making community benefit organisations.

Alongside our consultancy work we are increasingly both funding and directly leading projects across areas of particular interest in school/charity collaboration. Over 2016/17 we are focusing on 4 projects:

Is Inclusion Over? An exploration of the growing concern that some children and young people whose families lack financial and social capital are being 'disappeared' from schooling.

#Youthled Revisiting the principles and practice of youth led work, young people's leadership and student voice in the contemporary context

ParentEd Researching the evidence base for and approaches to including parents in education and school and developing mechanics that support wider parental engagement in education policy

Balance of power For many young people policy making, political engagement, the notions of citizenship, understanding economics and financial literacy are - at best - fleeting one off sessions in a PSHE lesson. We will be looking at the best of resources and approaches to ensure help all young people access these tools of power and privilege.
