Welcome

The Family Business Community is a trusted network for collaboration and learning.

We unite the family business community to provide a voice, a sense of belonging and an environment for learning and development. We create unique and valuable peer to peer contact and opportunities for generations of families to share their experiences and insight.

Our calendar of online and face to face events and family business programmes includes  insight events, conferences, regional awards, development boards and peer group sessions.

Additional services include private advisory, coaching and mentoring, video production, media and PR, senior level recruitment  and our annual subscription service with access to our online learning material.

Overall, the community is an influential voice for family businesses across the UK and has a global reach.
