Voice

For a thriving economy we lobby government and other stakeholders on issues that affect our town. To do this effectively we need to hear from you, our members.

Support

Supporting businesses by engaging with members to understand what they require, what issues might restrict progress, and suggest solutions to breaking down those barriers, including lobbying government to influence decisions being made.
We also support business by providing the following information:

  • Grants available
  • Government initiatives
  • Issues that could halt or prevent progress
  • Member discounts

We welcome suggestions from members regarding what other information they would like access to.

Promote

We hold regular networking events during which we also invite your views on current issues affecting the town. The Chamber can link you with other members and their businesses. Here you can promote your business and let members know of any special offers available to them.

Check out our events page to see what networking events are coming up. At any of these events you are welcome to promote your business through use of a small pop-up banner, hand-outs for attendees or let us know of any other creative ways you can think of.

Attract

It is our aim to attract more business investment and businesses to Shrewsbury. To do this we need to work with government officials to promote an economic development strategy for Shrewsbury.

  • We are liaising with key stakeholders who have influence beyond the town and county boundaries such as Shropshire Council and the Marches LEP.
  • We are currently gathering information that will be useful in promoting Shrewsbury as an attractive business destination.
