What We Do
The support family businesses can get by joining our community is key to help them solve important challenges. Being aware of these challenges, and getting the right support to avoid them or resolve them is often what makes the different between succeeding or not. As an IFB member, you have exclusive access to our network of business families and experts.
Learning from other's successes and failures, and sharing experiences, is key for family businesses to transition from one generation to the next. Our programme of events and the guidance we offer have proven to significantly help family businesses in their journey. As an IFB member, you have access to our learning programme and discounted rates to our annual conference.
In these changing times, it is important for family businesses to have a strong, united voice. We work to influence Government, raise awareness of the financial and social contribution family business make the UK, and ensure they can operate in a supporting regulatory environment. As an IFB member, you have the exclusive opportunity to shape our agenda by making your voice heard on the policy issues that are most relevant to you.
We champion the role, contribution and scale of the UK family business sector. We want the public to be aware of the importance of family business. This includes launching publications, sharing findings and engaging with Government, media, experts and academics to make sure family businesses are acknowledged and understood.
