Welcome to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Mid Norfolk Branch web pages. The Mid Norfolk Branch covers the areas of Norwich City, Broadland District and South Norfolk District Councils and has over 1500 small business members.
The FSB is all about giving a coordinated and powerful voice to small businesses, so it is really important that you tell us about the issues affecting your business and that you contribute to the current campaigns by telling us any relevant information that you hear about.
Have you ever thought of employing an ex-offender? Well it might surprise you that you may already have since job applicants don't need to tell potential employers about spent convictions or cautions.
