DBN is at heart of a great business community and we aim to give the very best support, skills and advice to our members. Quite a lot of what we do goes on behind the scenes.
We know that one size doesn't fit all and that is why we harness the expertise of our members to deliver hands-on, bespoke support to other businesses. We even pay them to deliver this and that way we can support two businesses at the same time as well as helping the local economy. We're proud of this because we believe it's what makes DBN special and means that we can offer unique benefits to our members.
Thanks to our members subscriptions, sponsorships and awards from Derwent Valley and Chester-le-Street AAPs we are able to deliver not-for-profit bespoke support to small businesses across a wide area.
Here's an article about our work to support businesses in the Derwent Valley in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
