Fifth year ranked in York Top 100 Businesses


Company update, Family Fund Business Services

Family Fund Business Services (FFBS) has been featured in the York Top 100 Businesses list for 2023. This is the fifth time FFBS has made the list created by York St John University in collaboration with The Press and Make it York. Ranked 62nd this year, we have seen a great improvement since the list was first produced in 2017, where we entered at 100th place.

Independently ranked

The non-weighted algorithm used to produce the list was developed by independent researchers in the Business School at York St John University. Using public accounts submitted to Companies House, they analyse over 11,000 businesses ranking turnover, balance sheet, profit levels, growth-rate, and staff turnover to produce an independent list of the top 100 businesses in York.

“If you are on the list, you are indeed in a special club – a group of local businesses that are growing and prospering.”

Steve Lowe, Sales Director for The Press & Local IQ

This year’s list was revealed at an exclusive networking event hosted by York St John university, where representatives from Top 100 businesses heard an inspirational talk from former England international rugby player, Tony Underwood. In his talk, focused on leadership, Tony emphasised the importance of ‘Performance through purpose’ where he proposed that people perform best when driven by a purpose they feel passionate about.

FFBS colleagues are united by our common purpose of delivering social value as 100% of profits generated are gifted to Family Fund. We strive to not only deliver social value within our own organisation, but to help grant-giving organisations to support people in need through distributing support to their beneficiaries on a daily basis.

Phil Henderson, Director of FFBS said “We are thrilled to be included in the York Top 100 list for the fifth time. To receive this recognition amongst our peers is a great achievement for us and cements our position as a business leader in the Yorkshire region.”

“It’s wonderful to have the work of our amazing team recognised, and awareness raised of our organisation in this way, so that we can continue to help our clients and parent charity help others.”
