Connect – Engage – Grow
Newhaven Chamber connects companies, and sole traders, through engagement and encouraging growth across the Newhaven area and from Brighton to Eastbourne.
Our members are part of a thriving community creating jobs and increasing prosperity for local people within the BN9 area in which they trade or, are located. Our members’ businesses range from sole traders to multi-million-pound businesses with hundreds of employees who enjoy sharing knowledge and expertise across a friendly network.
We want to make a difference to our members by introducing new business opportunities through networking events and wider community contacts. Our work is undertaken by volunteers who represent the interests of their members at town and district level.
Cost of joining
The annual membership is £85 per annum (£99 from 1 July, 2022), and for non-profits and charities, the cost is just £25 per annum (£40 from 1 July, 2022). You can download a form here.
Costs of weekly networking breakfasts are not included. Of course, we would love to see members weekly, but know that running your own business is time consuming and early starts do not suit everyone. We keep members fully informed through regular newsletters.
New customers for your business
Whether you are looking to acquire new customers locally, nationally, or internationally, our networking events encourage collaboration and provide trading opportunities. Through our connections with Dieppe and Vietnam, we can introduce you to contacts internationally, and through our affiliation with the Sussex Chamber of Commerce, you can learn about export documentation.
Promoting your business
Newhaven Chamber runs a successful weekly Breakfast Club, joint networking lunch events and social events with ample opportunities to promote your business to other members, guests, and local businesses.
Your logo and profile will be featured in our Newhaven Chamber website, with the opportunity to promote member offers and incentives across the network via our newsletters and social media. (These are subject to membership fit and channel availability).
Saving you money
Chamber members enjoy a range of benefits to keep costs down read more details on our members benefits page.
Regeneration of Newhaven
In July 2021, Newhaven was successful in its £19.3 million government funding award, which will see the town benefit from a series of plants to develop its potential. The five core themes are: A thriving and vital Southern Gateway for the UK; Celebrating the Energy of Industry; Valuing Creative Freedom, Re-imagining the Town Centre as a Focus for Community Life and Making the most of the Newhaven’s Maritime Heritage.
