FSB will be running a new series of peer support sessions, each focussing on the needs and issues facing different sectors or business groups. At this session, we will be joined by Paul Lancaster from Plan Digital, providing guidance and tips on taking the self-employment leap!

We would like to invite you to our peer support sessions, a new concept for 2021 with the aim chiefly to help, inform, advise and assist small businesses in any way we can. The events, hosted by your local Development Manager, also provide opportunities to network, meet your local FSB team, and access genuine business support in a relaxed setting.

The topic of discussion at this session will be around setting up a new business and taking the leap into self-employment.

Our guest speaker, Paul Lancaster of Plan Digital, will be myth busting and answering your questions on starting up a new business – including where to look and how to access start-up funding support. Having founded Newcastle Start Up Week, Paul is an expert in start-up support, providing you with a one-stop-shop covering all the aspects you need to set up as self-employed.

Need a checklist to make sure you’ve ticked all the boxes with starting your new business? Check out FSB’s new Start Up campaign and free downloadable guide.

Open to all businesses, both FSB members and non-members are welcome to attend, so feel free to share with your networks.

At each event we will give a short local FSB update, a chance to network with other attendees, access support, or be signposted to someone else who can help if we can’t!

Places are limited to so register early to take part.

We have a dedicated support hub on our website which gives specific guidance for small businesses on the Coronavirus
