In Tamworth and Lichfield, 30 placements for small businesses to join the FSB for 12 months are being provided as part of the response to Covid19.
Tamworth Borough Council and Lichfield District Council have come together to provide support for sole traders, microbusinesses and SMEs with up to four employees. If you are a small business that has been unable to benefit from the grant and rate relief packages so far and would like an extra boost - call Lorraine Farley on 01827 709525 or email her with your business details Lorraine-Farley@tamworth.gov.uk.
The memberships, which you can also purchase at www.fsb.org.uk/join-us.html provide all sorts of assistance and networking opportunities, from legal assistance, debt recovery and health and safety support to insurance, skills building and grant seeking.
It would be great if some of Tamworth's smaller businesses got a stronger foothold so I hope you will consider making an application!
If you are a small biz with more than 4 staff members or have been able to use the grants, Lorraine and her team may still be able to help, specialising in business support and boosting the local economy the local Councils do what they can to help bring your ideas to reality.
