NATIONAL BUSINESS RESPONSE NETWORK

BUSINESS SUPPORT IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER

About the network

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased critical health and social issues in towns and cities across the UK. The needs across communities have intensified, and the obligation to link business support to community requirements has never been more urgent.

The National Business Response Network (NBRN) is the easiest and most efficient way to get urgent resources to the communities that need them the most. To date, the NBRN has met almost 3,000 different community requirements.

Communities urgently need food, clothing and care essentials. They also desperately require business skills and expertise.
