Be connected  |  Make a difference  |  Support your Chamber

We are an independent membership organisation, established in 1911 & managed by a voluntary Board of local business people to promote and support the interests of local businesses.  We work together to achieve the goal of ensuring the voice of the Northern Devon business community is well understood at a local, regional and national level.

Building a stronger business community. Together.

Kickstart Northern Devon Gateway

The Kickstart Scheme is a government £2bn scheme for fully funded work placements of 6 months at 25 hrs/wk for 16-24 year olds.

With the support of our local authorities, Torridge & North Devon Councils, Barnstaple Chamber & North Devon Plus are a recognised Gateway for employers, providing support to micro and small businesses who would like to register for the scheme, but are unable to act on their own behalf with 30 placements.
