Get involved…be a Volunteer Ambassador with Stratforward!

An exciting opportunity has arisen to Volunteer with Stratforward Business Improvement District. We would love for enthusiastic local people to come and work with us to support our Town during the busy summer season.  

Stratford-Upon-Avon Business Improvement District (BID) is an independent, not-for-profit company set up to represent the needs of local businesses in Stratford-Upon-Avon Town Centre with the aim of improving the area for all.

Since 2009, Stratford-Upon-Avon BID has contributed greatly to the development of Stratford-Upon-Avon, which is now widely recognised as one of the most historic and well-preserved Town Centres in the country.

Stratford-Upon-Avon BID has many years of experience working closely with businesses, employees, community organisations and all our wonderful visitors to the Town Centre. It is a really exciting time for the organisation as a new brand is about to be launched taking the BID into a new era of development and delivery playing a lead role in connecting local businesses and residents with the wonderful projects on offer within the Town Centre.

Moving forward, we will continue to work together with employers, residents, the public sector, transport partners, workers, and visitors to make Stratford-Upon-Avon a fully integrated destination that works for all its community. We are clear that we can plan more effectively, and deliver more widely, when we work together

Volunteers will help signpost visitors to the town to all the wonderful attractions, shops, restaurants, and other wonderful establishments within the BID area.

Volunteers will be provided with uniform and training

Please email us for more information and to apply via
