Your local team

One of the unique benefits of joining the FSB is the local support we provide to our members through our team of dedicated staff and volunteers located in every region across the UK.

Living and working locally ensures they are not only part of the local business community but also understand the unique issues facing small businesses in each part of the country. We meet business owners, council leaders, MPs and many other stakeholders on a daily basis to ensure the voice of small businesses is represented in your town or city. Equally important, our local teams also organise events, seminars and exhibitions to allow business owners to develop strong local networks within their communities. 

If you’d like to contact any of our local team about local issues, events, media enquiries or opportunities our Operational Support Co-Ordinators are your first point of call. If you have a question about FSB membership or your member benefits our Customer Services team are ready and waiting to take your call.
