The Federation of Small Businesses

The Federation of Small Businesses

The Federation of Small Businesses is the UK’s leading business organisation. It exists to protect and promote the interests of the self-employed and all those who run their own business. The FSB is non-party political, and with around 200,000 members, it is also the largest organisation representing small businesses in the UK.

Lobbying

Our lobbying arm – led by the Westminster Press and Parliamentary office – puts pressure on the Government in Whitehall and EU institutions in Brussels, and put the issues affecting FSB members over to the media. The FSB also has Press and Parliamentary Offices in Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast to lobby the devolved assemblies. Development Managers work alongside members in our regions to further FSB influence at a regional level.

Member Benefits

In addition, Member Services is committed to delivering a wide range of high quality, good value business services to members of the FSB. These services will be subject to continuing review and will represent a positive enhancement to the benefit of membership of the Leading Business Organisation in the UK.
