'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

For small businesses to compete, grow and stay current they need support. But the business support landscape is complex, with a patchwork of public and private sector initiatives at both local and national levels.
We believe current business support is under-used. A lack of joined-up thinking by policy makers at a national level means there’s little understanding of whether business support is working or not.
We led efforts to streamline the business support offer.
We believe a long-term and co-ordinated approach to business support will result in better services and consequently more energised and high-performing small businesses. We think this can be achieved by co-ordinating national plans and using Growth Hubs to deliver fewer, more targeted initiatives to help raise business performance.
In 2013 we published a major paper, ‘Micros Untapped’, looking at the support available for the smallest firms in Scotland, especially those looking to employ staff.
The report highlighted the lack of awareness and understanding of the needs of small businesses by public agencies and government departments responsible for boosting employment.
In direct response to the report, the Scottish Government launched a £38 million SME growth programme.
The programme includes tailored business support for micro businesses, especially those looking to start employing staff.
We have lobbied and secured the most generous business support package in the UK, ensuring that Business Gateway is the main port of call for small business queries.
We’re lobbying the Scottish Government to incorporate all online public sector support to business into one site - my.gov.scot.
