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.

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