FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I'M ALREADY A MEMBER OF ANOTHER GROUP - WHAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT? 

We don't think anyone offers the support we do.

Our focus is helping you to establish foundational support in your business and network to help it be a sustainable, resilient company, while helping you look after you and your staffs mental health and wellbeing.

We offer you an everyday support network via our Slack channel and with our Members Impact Fund. 

We don’t expect you to pay a year up front like some of our competitors (unless you want to!) because we know you need to manage your cash flow, however by doing so you get two months free membership.

We offer a 30 day money back guarantee to ensure you feel the same. 

DO I NEED TO BE A BUSINESS OWNER TO JOIN?

We understand Business Owners are busy, so perhaps you may want one of your team to be the active member in the community for you, that's fine!

We ask that the lead member for every application is the Business Owner or a member of the Leadership team. You can add extra members of your team to the network at no additional cost. 

WHY DO I NEED TO APPLY?

We want to make sure that you’re ready for what the network has to offer and that you are an ethical business with a real drive for change and impact. It’s important that we get the mix right for all the members.

Your application allows us to ensure all our businesses have the same vision, to create regenerative businesses that have a positive impact with the work they do. 

ARE THERE ANY DISCOUNTS OR SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?

Scholarships are available to business owners unable to pay the monthly payments on a case by case basis, with up to 10% of the upcoming applications available on bursary. 

If you choose to pay annually rather than monthly you get 10 months for the price of 12. 

HOW IS MY MEMBERSHIP FEE SPENT?

We keep all our spending totally transparent.

We share the income and costs of the Better Business Network in an impact report, including what was spent on operations, marketing and with our partners. Check out the impact report linked in the next question.

WHAT POSITIVE IMPACT DOES THE NETWORK HAVE? 

We have partnered with several different organisations to increase our positive impact as a business and as a community. 

In regards to charitable giving, we donate to Buy One Give One with every new membership, provide monthly donations to Client Earth and milestone donations to 1% For the Planet. 

We also work collectively for improved government legislation and support.

HOW OLD IS THE BETTER BUSINESS NETWORK? 

The Better Business Network started in April 2021 accepting small cohorts of businesses.

We opened our doors officially in June 2022 and started promoting the network to the wider business community in Summer 2022. 

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY? 

If you join the network and feel that it is not the right fit for you and your business, you can request a full refund up to 30 days from joining, no questions asked. 

WHAT IS THE £250 MEMBERS IMPACT FUND?

The Impact Fund is our way to give back to the community. Every month businesses can apply for a £250 grant to support improving their spiritual, mental or physical wellbeing. This can be used by the Business Owner or a member of their team.

Winners are chosen at random during a live YouTube event every month. (This fund begins in the new year)

HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO CONTRIBUTE? 

You get out of the network what you put in. It’s important to contribute to the conversation, support and help your fellow members.

Our weekly members email and monthly roundup of new members is a great way to get started on growing your connections. 

We hold monthly Monday Club speed networking sessions and workshops to give you the opportunity to meet other members as well as through our community slack channel. We actively encourage you to connect in whichever way that works for you.

HOW DO I ACCESS ALL THE RESOURCES AND WORKSHOPS? 

You will be given access to a members area where you will be able to access all the free resources, workshop recordings.
