Whatever your business, the FSB will work for you.

Scottish Policy Unit (SPU)

The Scottish Policy Unit (SPU), working with policy and parliamentary staff, ensures that the small business sector's voice is heard at all levels of government in Scotland, by developing a coherent and evidence-based case to put to politicians and civil servants.



The Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) Scottish Policy development is, like the rest of the organisation, member-led. 

The Scottish Policy Unit, an FSB committee, meets on a monthly basis to discuss issues of significance to the Scottish small business community, although with a special focus on areas controlled by the Scottish Parliament.


FSB Public Affairs and Policy staff attend these meetings and update the members on external developments and their own activities. The committee contains two representatives from each of the four FSB regions in Scotland. These representatives gather member experiences and evidence from their regional meetings.
