Our logo communicates that the Guild is as much about people and their communities as it is about trade and business. It’s what makes us different from other business groups and it’s why our work is vitally important. Before making your application please consider whether you can align yourself with our values and principles;
Inclusive: our diversity is our strength, our guild is open to people from all backgrounds, and to businesses from all sectors
Reciprocal: through collective action on common interests our work generates solidarity, reciprocity and trust between members and the wider community
Collaborative: by working with like-minded organisations we grow strength for effective action on the issues that matter to our members
Dependable: we strive to keep our promises – when we make mistakes (we're all human), we own up and say we're sorry
Creative: we think imaginatively to solve problems big and small
Pragmatic: we are both ambitious and realistic. Our work is rooted in the broad base of our members common interests, not in ideology or dogma
We collect information about you and your business when you join as a member, subscribe to our mailing list, pay dues, make a donation, or take part in an online action such as a petition, a survey or if you contribute to our rental database.
We share limited information with our service providers - Google, Mailchimp, GoCardless and PayPal who help us send you our communications and process your contributions. We do not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes, and we will not share your data with other organisations for their own marketing purposes.
We do share the marketing information you provide to us with our web developers and our map producers Herb Lester so that the public information about your business that you would like us to promote is listed as part of your membership package.
