FSB has launched this year’s search to find the best small business friendly initiatives undertaken by local authorities across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Our Small Business Friendly Awards are well established and highly respected by all councils, and provide an excellent opportunity for all Local Authorities to nominate specific projects delivered in the last year, which have had a positive impact on the local small business community.
"We are very keen to recognise any organisation that has gone above and beyond to achieve this. The Small Business Friendly Awards scheme aims to show all local authorities in the UK the best examples of support that this region’s small businesses receive from their councils.
"It is very easy to criticise Councils but FSB has worked very hard to create and maintain a good working relationship, and these awards are a further initiative to recognise in public, the efforts made to encourage and improve local economic regeneration within the small business sector.”
Councils wishing to apply can either do so by email or by online application.
