The Family Business Network is a trusted community for collaboration and learning.

We unite the family business community to provide a voice, a sense of belonging and an environment for learning and development. We create unique and valuable peer to peer contact and opportunities for generations of families in business to share their experiences and insight.

We provide research, publish news and great stories, nurture collaboration and help source the right people to work in and with our family business community.  Our programme of online and face to face events includes family case studies, topical debates, exclusive insight events, conferences and regional awards.

Established in 2014, under the leadership of Co-Directors Sue Howorth and Dave Clarkson together with their extended team, our network has developed an engaged community of family businesses, influencers and partners that support the sector.

We are an influential voice for family businesses across the UK, originating in Cumbria and evolving across the North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humberside, the Midlands.

We have worked with Sue and the team in a number of different ways over the years, and applaud their passion for all that they do supporting Family Businesses. So much energy and commitment.


At Rachael Bell Wealth Management we are so excited to have become a partner of The Family Business Network in Cumbria. We have previously sponsored the Food & Drink Producers category at the Family Business Awards and attended the Family Business Conferences. We have thoroughly enjoyed each event and there is a distinct atmosphere which you do not experience elsewhere. There is such a feeling of community and support at each event. We love the whole ethos of the Network and we learn something new every time. It is a network where the family businesses and entrepreneurs celebrate each other’s success and learn from one another’s difficult times in business. I think most of all, we are very proud of the amazing family businesses and entrepreneurs we have in Cumbria and we want to support, promote and be part of this fabulous community.
