Helping business to grow is essential for any community. It brings stability, wealth and hope. If the residents of your town feel secure and free from financial stress, they are happier, healthier and more productive.
The FSB helps do just that. Its services further its members along the journey of growth. By working with FSB’s experts and resources, companies are able to expand their skills, focus on what is important in their business and promote the product and/or service they offer.

Much Like BID (Business Improvement District), the FSB helps to identify, implement and improve trading opportunities in Harrogate. Having a flourishing business sector is important in terms of our Community Wellness as stress impacts negatively on our health and productivity. Having a thriving and growing business community boosts the wellbeing of the town’s residents – as well as the town’s own image and appeal. This is what makes financial security and commercial prosperity so essential as a dimension of community wellness – as explained here on the Health & Wellbeing Show on Stray FM:
Help to keep your town healthy. Help promote your business with Wellness Harrogate.
