The Forum of Private Business, for the benefit of Thrive Members.

The Forum is a leading small business support group dedicated to helping business owners focus on growth and profitability.


The Forum was established by small business owners in 1977 as a lobbying group to campaign for the fair treatment of small firms.

Over the years, as the business landscape has changed, so too have the needs of their members. To stay relevant, the offering has evolved and is now led by the business support services.

They are business people too, so know the challenges that companies are facing every day and are there with advice and support to help overcome them.
