Making Stuff Better is Gill and Matt, who first met when working together in inner city Bristol. They established a powerful working relationship that means they set to work quickly and creatively on any given problem, applying rigour in finding a solution yet always keeping people at the core of what they do. They’re firm believers in the power of education to transform lives, but also insist it is too important to be taken seriously.
