3 Northern Businesses To Check Out Today


So, what better way to get this blog started than by sharing some of our favourite northern businesses? It was hard to whittle this list down to just 3, and I'm sure there will be plenty of other posts in the future sharing more, but we thought that this was a good place to start.

All of these businesses are working to put a real spotlight on the north, something that we're also incredibly passionate about here at This North Works. Check them out, and let us know in the comments if you have any other recommendations!

1) Northern Power Women

Northern Power Women is a collaborative campaign to accelerate gender diversity from the North of England. Founded by Simone Roche, they're passionate about connecting and engaging with people in the north to encourage gender equality.

With an annual awards ceremony, a mentorship programme and a podcast to boot, there's a whole host of content and resources to get your teeth stuck into. There are also plenty of events too if you're looking to do some networking up north. 

2) WeBlogNorth

WeBlogNorth is a collective of bloggers, vloggers and social influencers based in the North of England. They host informative and inspiring events, partner with agencies to put a focus on the north and offer a membership that allows you to access even more benefits.

Plus, they also host the annual Northern Blog Awards, which is a real celebration of all the talent and creativity that can be found in this part of the world. 


In their own words, NRTH LASS is a print magazine with northern charm. They focus on successful women and aim to empower and inspire women in business, start-ups, art, literature, parenthood, travel, and leisure.

We love the whole ethos behind the magazine, and as they report from 5 major northern cities, you're bound to read about some interesting things going on right on your doorstep.
