For context, Chamber membership is tiered into bronze, silver and gold levels. Depending on which of these packages a business chooses, they will be entitled to different benefits. Among other things, they will get complimentary tickets to events, one2one business support, access to HR and legal services, and various networking opportunities.

Patronage is a way for members to take their relationship with the Chamber even further, by making a commitment to work together more closely. Patrons are identified as key anchor businesses and employers within the Doncaster borough and the current list involves some of the biggest names in our region (including Carlton Forest Group, Doncaster College, Polypipe, St. Leger Homes and, most recently, SYNETIQ).
