Supporting UK Black Business

Supporting UK Black Lives & Businesses

WHO THIS IS FOR:
Anyone who would like to support local and small black-owned businesses in the UK but not sure where to start or the ways possible. The internet has a plethora of resources for you to check out so don’t be afraid to do your own research.

This Carrd was created initially for supporting the BLM movement however it can also be used to help you diversify your network and lifestyle choices. I will try to update this list as much as I can.


Resource List


CONNECT
If you'd like to connect or contact me with a request to add on any UK black businesses that are not on this Carrd, please get in touch below.

Please bare with me as this is a work-in-progress and may take some time to upload all new businesses. X
