What is a Chamber of Commerce?
Chambers of Commerce provide a voice to the business communities they represent and work to improve the local business environment in which they operate.
Chambers are independent businesses, accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). Gaining and maintaining BCC accreditation is a thorough and rigorous process, and ensures that the highest standards are maintained throughout the network.
Collectively, the 53 accredited Chambers represent 75,000 businesses and 5,000,000 employees.
As a network, our opinions are regularly sought by policymakers and parliamentarians and we’ve been helping to shape the UK’s business agenda collectively for more than 150 years.
The Chamber network sits at the heart of local business communities in every part of the UK, helping businesses of every size and sector to thrive.
