Application Guidance

The Family Network Business Directory is designed to improve the information available to persons seeking reliable businesses by offering a list of businesses and individuals.

It is not a pre-contractual requirement for businesses to be a member of The Family Network

Membership availability

Applications for membership will be considered from all types of businesses, based in all parts of the UK, although we reserve the right to refuse membership if we have concerns over the legality of your business.

We will also consider applications from businesses trading regionally or nationally, with multiple premises. We will consider each such application on its own merits and whilst we will expect that such applicants meet the terms and conditions of membership we will make appropriate arrangements to administer the application and membership which may differ from those referred to elsewhere on this website.

Applications may be refused on the basis that the business activities are regarded as being unlawful, not in the wider community interest or in conflict with the well-being of customers.

Membership is subject to an audit designed to establish that the applicant meets the standards required by the scheme as set out in the Code of Conduct and the Terms and Conditions.


You will be required to pay fees as set out on registration.

The application process

Depending on the location of the business, the application process is carried out by the The Family Network Branch Leader or by the Directors of The Family Network.

However we will make it clear what information we expect from you, what we will do and the amount of any fees required.

We will expect you to show that you are able to meet the Terms and Conditions and Code of Practice . We will place particular emphasis on customer service and safety, plus compliance with applicable legislation
