Standing at the heart of the Halifax, Huddersfield and Wakefield business communities, our mission is to drive growth among businesses of all sizes across the districts, by providing relevant and valuable support and benefits.

We pride ourselves on representing three districts as one Chamber – your Chamber.

Serving the communities for 170 years, we recognise the need for localised representation, a community voice and support tailored to each district.

Our knowledge of the opportunities and challenges of now and the future, have allowed us to develop three sub divisions to better represent our members locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Mid Yorkshire Chamber now parents The Halifax & District Chamber of Commerce, The Huddersfield & District Chamber of Commerce and The Wakefield & District Chamber of Commerce.

Each sub division provides members with additional representation and offers a more localised approach to business support.

What we stand for

We believe that all businesses should have strong representation, a voice within their community and be given the opportunity to thrive in a tough economic environment.

We understand the challenges of running a business and want to support those who need it the most.

We aren’t immune to the difficulties which is why we use our experience and connections to give you support that’s relevant as well as allowing you to voice any regional and national issues that may affect your business.

How we support local businesses

We ensure that businesses are connected by providing opportunities for them to build links and network.

We ensure that businesses are supported by offering relevant services, from employee and financial benefits to business advice and training.

We ensure that businesses are represented byensuring your views are understood by policy-makers locally, regionally and nationally to ensure the environment is right for your business to thrive.

Member Testimonials

Forget Me Not Children's Hospice

“We are part of the community that the Chamber serves; we mirror the same areas of contact throughout Mid Yorkshire, supporting us in getting known within the business community. The areas I’ve been mostly successful in are the 60 Useful Minutes, MY Network and Last Friday Club have all been a great help to the charity.”

Caldervale Technology

"The Chamber plays a significant role in helping us with documentation, and with advice and expertise on new markets we may pursue. There is a variety of useful events and training sessions on offer and we are able to cherry pick the necessary ones significant to our needs."


“After a recent discussion with Martin Hathaway it’s reminded me just how much the chamber is valued by PrintPod. We’ve been members for 14 years or so and being part of a business association has been invaluable, it’s not just for networking but for all the different services they provide"
