What do we do?

NetWORK NotWORK CIC (community interest company) is a free-of-charge, local business community in the North East of England. The NetWORK was established to promote business growth within Wynyard, its founding locality, and allow business owners to form valuable connections and gain support when needed. Since its inception, the NetWORK now spans from Middlesbrough to Northumberland. Owning a business can be isolating and formal networking groups are not for everyone. We aim to operate a fun, non-committal, and informal approach that does not require referrals or other formal recommendations to be made.

NetWORK NotWORK CIC does not operate a formal referral scheme and does not aim to compete with well-established networking groups and organisations. NetWORK NotWORK is a community initiative that utilises a friendly, informal, fun, and educational approach to support socioeconomic development. Our social mindset aims to support the physical and mental well-being of its members by creating supportive connections in each local community.

We hope to work with and alongside local authorities and larger organisations to support you in the best way we possibly can.
