Wirral Chamber of Commerce is a proud and established Chamber, with roots dating back to 1912, when leading industrialists from our area formed the Birkenhead Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Under the stewardship of its first President, William Hesketh Lever, the Chamber supported its members to navigate the changing economic and political circumstances of the early Twentieth Century.
Today, Wirral Chamber provides its members with the highest quality business support services to enable them to compete and grow, something that is recognised by our prestigious British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) Accreditation. This accreditation provides vital assurances to our members that we have met an important and continuously updated quality standard that covers all aspects of our operations.
Wirral Chamber of Commerce entered the latest stage of its development in 2014. Since this time we have introduced countless new initiatives, all designed to support business growth and to create economic prosperity for the area.
These initiatives include The Training Hub, a dedicated department delivering training to businesses both large and small; we have the Birkenhead BID, Wirral's first Business Improvement District, which aims to make central Birkenhead a better place to visit, trade and invest, and Love Liscard, an initiative in partnership with Wirral Council and buusnesses.
Quality business accommodation is the bedrock of our business model and we completed the Pacific Road Business Hub in 2016, bringing much needed quality waterfront office accommodation to Birkenhead, together with introducing The Sheds a state-of-the-art co-working space and offices.
Business growth, employment creation and supporting investment are areas in which a modern, innovative and growing Chamber should support – we have made these key within our objectives for which we feel we can make a telling contribution.
If you are a member of Wirral Chamber of Commerce I would be delighted to hear about your business and how best we can work with you to ensure that the support you need is ready and waiting. If you would like to consider joining Wirral Chamber of Commerce then my Chamber team would be very happy to explain the benefits for you and your business through membership.
These are exciting times for Wirral and for Wirral Chamber of Commerce. I hope you can join and support us as we work to grow our economy and restore Wirral as one of the UKs most prosperous business locations.
CEO, Wirral Chamber of Commerce
