Our aims are to:
Sodbury and Yate Business Association is a not-for-profit organisation that was established in 2009 to provide a support network for businesses in the area.
It is run by small business owners within Chipping Sodbury and Yate who have the same shared experiences of starting up and running their own business.
With a strong commitment to social responsibility and supporting the local community the Association is partnered with local councils and charitable organisations and makes an annual donation to local charities.
Members pay a modest annual membership fee of £30, which provides a number of benefits under our five main aims:
Promote your Business

Help the Community
This year we have supported Yate Food Bank and Brain Tumour Support (Thornbury) and proudly presented a cheque to representatives from each charity.
Members decide at the AGM each year on the causes to raise money to support.
