Business Support: What’s A Chamber Of Commerce?

Each Chamber of Commerce is a local hub to access a broad offer of business support.

The Chambers of Commerce are a dynamic Network of 53 accredited UK Chambers and in over 75 international markets, committed to creating a platform for businesses to shape the economy for the better.

With a powerful national and international Network that amplifies its members voices, Chambers of Commerce gives companies the opportunity to drive change in their communities and on the global stage.

With over 160 years of history and Chambers in every region of the UK, the Chamber of Commerce Network is committed to giving companies a place to be inspired, the support to grow, and a space where every business belongs.

Each accredited Chamber of Commerce is;

  • an independent SME
  • a non-profit organisation
  • a private limited company
  • owned by its members
  • committed to supporting UK business

Every Chamber of Commerce is different. Each structured and resourced to best deliver business support to our region. Because some regions are urban and city-based, whilst others largely rural. Some heavily rely on tourism and hospitality, and some are leading the UK’s manufacturing and export efforts. We each have experts specific to YOUR landscape and business support needs.

There’s a Chamber of Commerce dedicated to every region of the UK. As a result, we’re uniquely placed to help businesses of every size and sector. Meaning from micro one-person businesses to our country’s largest employers, we’re all in it together, locally, nationally and globally.

Ours is the only business support network that helps British businesses build relationships on every level. So no other membership organisation can compete!

Global Business Network

We’re so much more than a UK network. Did you know there’s a wider international community too? Well, British Chambers of Commerce represent our members in over 40 countries around the globe. We call this our Global Business Network (GBN).

Do you import or export goods and services?
Would you like to start?

Every Chamber offers International Trade advice and services. Including customs declaration certification and documentation. So, if you import or export goods and services; or if you’d like to start – you’ll be needing your Chamber.

“Our focus is local, our influence national and our reach global”

Your Chamber of Commerce is not a government department

Every Chamber of Commerce and its members are represented centrally by British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). We’re all apolitical and independent of government. However, the BCC provides a respected voice to the business communities they represent. Based in Westminster, this ensures our priorities and concerns are heard in the corridors of power. Policymakers and parliamentarians regularly seek out our opinions. It’s thanks to this lobbying activity that we’ve been helping to shape the UK’s business agenda for more than 160 years.

Put simply, we are many, we are credible and the UK government LISTENS to us.
