National Family Business Day is the annual celebration of family businesses and the contribution they make to the UK economy, organised by Family Business United.
Taking place on September 23 annually, it brings the family business community together in a day of celebration and social media activity. #GBFamilyBizDay is a day for all family businesses irrespective of size or sector and new for 2021 is the creation of a group of Ambassadors to help raise awareness and support the day too.
Caribbean Blinds who are based in East Anglia are the latest ambassadors supporting National Family Business Day 2021.
