A note from your Chamber
I hope that you all had a good August and have been able to start to return to the workplace safely as we continue to recover from Covid-19 together.
NEW OFFER FOR NEW MEMBERS
We want to ensure the voice of businesses across Calderdale, Kirklees, and Wakefield is as strong as possible, which is why we’re delighted to be able to offer more firms the chance to become members, growing our influence – and yours.
The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) are funding a scheme which will allow us to offer even more support to our existing members, so if you know of any businesses or colleagues who you think might benefit from Chamber membership, please pass on this information.
The scheme is open from today until 31 December on a first come, first served basis, and offers significantly discounted annual Mid Yorkshire Chamber membership to any organisations in the Calderdale, Kirklees, and Wakefield districts with fewer than 50 employees. Joining fees start from as little as £55 – up to 75% discount – for a 12-month membership.
Membership applications can be made here.
The Quarterly Economic Survey is now open for quarter three; I urge all businesses to take part and have your voice heard.

The Government has recently made further financial support available for those who are unable to work. Please see below the latest updates:
Please do get in touch with us if you feel your business and employees require further support in your Covid-19 recovery.
