MYCC launches free memberships for Wakefield businesses to help support Covid-19 recovery

The Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is taking proactive steps to accelerate post-coronavirus business recovery and growth by offering free memberships to businesses in the Wakefield City Region.

Facilitated through a £100k grant from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Wakefield-based businesses will be able to join the Mid Yorkshire Chamber free for one year - and take advantage of the support and services the Chamber offers, including financial, legal and employee benefits.

Member businesses will benefit from skills workshops and networking, as well as discounted export services and half-price documentation for those trading outside of the UK.

The Mid Yorkshire Chamber also represents organisations by lobbying policy makers locally, regionally and nationally to ensure member’s voices are heard on the issues that are affecting them.

Martin Hathaway, managing director of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer these new membership packages to support even more businesses in the Wakefield region.

“Businesses have faced unprecedented challenges during the last 12 months and we hope that through the Chamber they can access the vital support needed to recover and thrive in 2021.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations in Wakefield to grow their businesses and get connected, supported and represented, both locally and nationally, as we work together to weather the storm of this pandemic.”

The subsidised scheme will offer organisations with less than 50 employees and based in Wakefield free Chamber membership for one year

The scheme will end on 28th February 2021 and is available on a first come, first served basis.

After the first 12 months, members wishing to extend their membership will pay the standard fee.
