Whatever your business, the FSB will work for you.

Local Government & Community Safety

The FSB believes that if Scottish local authorities use the range of powers at their disposal to boost local enterprise confidence and make it easier to do businesses, then they can make a real impact on the Scottish economy. Further, if we are to ensure the future of the Scottish high street and town centres then we need local businesses and their councils working together to inject life back into the centres of our conurbations.
