What is SYBA?

Sodbury and Yate Business Association

Our aims are to:

  • Promote your business
  • Grow your business
  • Network
  • Socialise
  • Help the Community

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:

  • Promotion of your business within the local area (word of mouth via members)
