Federation members can access a wide range of benefits, including:

  • a funding platform

  • employment advice and protection
  • debt recovery
  • an award-winning legal hub for advice
  • virtual support events and networking opportunities.

Small businesses with 0-10 employees can access the scheme on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Representing business interests via the FSB

We are thrilled to offer Chelmsford businesses a further opportunity to take advantage of the range of business support services offered. Previous rounds of this scheme have proved to be highly successful. As businesses continue to face challenges and uncertainties, it is important that organisations are clear where they can access support. Offering businesses fully funded FSB membership compliments the comprehensive business support package we have developed to respond to local business needs at this time.

It is great to see Chelmsford City Council continuing to offer a high level of support to their small business community. FSB are totally committed to furthering the aims and ambitions of small businesses and we are working together in partnership to make this happen.

Lobbying is at the forefront of what FSB does and members can also benefit from having a powerful voice in Government, raising awareness of the issues affecting small businesses and campaigning for changes in law. I look forward to meeting new members and representing their views in Essex and beyond.
