Family Business Of The Year Awards

Paul Andrews

The Family Business of the Year Awards were created by Family Business United to celebrate the UK family business sector, to recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and to celebrate the contribution that they make.

Family Business United continues to be a leading resource and online magazine for the sector, championing the cause and sharing best practice. These awards seek to showcase the best of British family firms, culminating in a gala awards evening.

We are looking for family firms, irrespective of their size, family firms that use their family nature and values to build successful businesses and represent great ambassadors for the sector as contenders for these awards.
