Our Partners

Lockdown has been a challenging time for everyone in business, especially for those that have been either unable to trade and then those who are operating ‘click and collect’ have found life tough too.

It is by the support of some great partners that Bradford Means Business has been able to bring together a community of businesses to create a video wall showcasing more than 50 local businesses that have a story to tell.

With the huge thank you to Exa Networks, Bradford BID and Sparkling Bradford together we are proud to be supporting local businesses in shouting about what makes your business great and what we can all expect when lockdown eases.

The videos are posted here on Bradford Means Business, on our YouTube channel and on the Telegraph & Argus website and we have an event on Facebook too.

None of this would be possible without the continued support from our partners to supporting local businesses and please tag them in if you share any of the videos, together let’s celebrate as we love LOCAL business.

Now in its third year, Sparkling Bradford is a partnership campaign encompassing the whole Bradford district, with VisitBradford, The Broadway Bradford, Bradford Business Improvement District (BID) and Bradford Council.

The seasonal campaign runs winter and summer and provides support and marketing of Bradford district through Sparkling Bradford initiatives, including a dedicated website www.sparklingbradford.info and an extensive PR campaign to keep local people, informed, inspired and engaged.

For more information follow #SparklingBradford and @VisitBradford on Twitter, Facebook and Sparkling Bradford on Instagram.

Bradford Business Improvement District (BID) represents more than 600 businesses in Bradford city centre who each pay an annual levy to help fund initiatives to make it a better place in which to live, work, shop, enjoy hospitality and leisure activities and make a living.

Launched in January 2019, the BID has already made a huge impact on the city’s cleanliness and visual appearance with the start of its five-year programme to deep clean the streets, remove gum and smarten up street furniture as well as installing hanging baskets and improving lighting in key footfall areas.

The BID is supporting the Connecting Businesses video initiative as part of our campaign to help support and prepare city centre firms for a bright post-lockdown future when we will be able to stage and sponsor a host of exciting events, large and small, to bring back shoppers and visitors and help businesses to thrive once more.
