What is NFBP?

We are a not-for-profit organisation supporting local businesses and growing the New Forest economy.

We bring local businesses together. We host many opportunities throughout the year to help local businesses stay informed and competitive, leading to useful connections and contacts, sharing of ideas, collaboration on projects and opportunities for new business.

We host knowledge sharing events to help businesses to grow. Our business support programme helps local businesses to stay informed and competitive. We invite experts in a wide range of topics to share their knowledge. See our Events page for details of upcoming events.

We have a dynamic Board of Directors and Advisory Group who lobby on important issues for local business. Our Advisory Group is made up of representatives from many business sectors, from local universities and colleges, the District and County Councils, the New Forest National Park Authority, Go New Forest, New Forest Marque and the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership. Together we deliver the local economic development strategy and grow the New Forest economy.
