Public Affairs – Engaging with government

Business in the Community has an active Public Affairs strategy, engaging with government at all levels.

We keep government informed and interested in our work, and encourage our members to contribute to consultations and attend high-level meetings with Ministers and senior officials through a series of roundtable meetings, dinners, briefings and press work.

We are currently embarking on a series of meetings with Ministers around our Build Back Responsibly campaign.

If you are a member of Business in the Community, you can access our full Public Affairs section within our member only area. If you need access, please email

If you would like to sponsor a government roundtable discussion, fully managed by Business in the Community, please contact
