Our Appeal for National Support for UK BIDs and Places

Do you want to be involved in delivering national support for UK BIDs and Places? 

Business Improvement Districts and UK places no longer have the same level of nationwide representation or the single voice to affect and share policy.  They also miss the opportunity to get together to share ideas.

On request, Revive & Thrive has been asked to fill the vacuum.

But we can’t do it alone and we want you to help shape a truly representative body for place management, of all kinds and UK wide.

Revive & Thrive and the custodians of our places and BIDs are looking for –


Applications from a small number of the right professionals to join our Non-Executive Board to ensure the best representation for UK BIDs and Places

The role of Place /BID Manager can be a difficult role to deliver as there are often many conflicting interests to balance and many balls to keep in the air. 

At this uncertain time for post-Brexit Britain it is very important that our towns and cities are championed as the engines of the UK economy. 

I believe that Revive & Thrive has an increasingly influential role to play in support those working on the front line and in shaping national policy to make our urban centres vibrant and viable.”
