Family Business Week

Family Business Week, which takes place annually during November, is a week-long celebration of UK family businesses as a force for good, open to all UK family business.

Family firms are the backbone of the UK economy and the bedrock of our communities. However, the scale of their impact and contribution is often underestimated.

Family Business Week is designed to ensure the contribution family firms make to our economy and communities up and down the country is recognised and celebrated.

Led and facilitated by Family Business UK, the week is an opportunity for everyone to get behind family businesses and show their support.

Get Involved in Family Business Week 2024 

Family Business week 2024 will be happening from the 25th – 29th November 2024, across the UK, with events in London and the North West, sponsored for the third consecutive year by carefully selected FBUK corporate partners, NatWest.

This year we will be celebrating the central role family firms play in supporting their local economy and community.

Through supporting employees, local suppliers, customers, and community initiatives –communities up and down the country rely heavily on their local family firms.  They help enrich the areas in which they operate, with roots which often go back generations.

Join us in promoting those family businesses which help make your area so special, and in celebrating those who go above and beyond to support their communities.

Whether you’re a family business owner, employee, adviser or a policymaker, there are numerous ways to get involved and show your support for Family Business Week.

From sharing your story, attending the Family Business reception and events, to inviting your local MP to visit your site on Family Business Friday, get involved and help us spread the message about why family businesses are so vital to the UK’s economy and communities up and down the country.
