The Federation for Small Businesses helps thousands of businesses like yours every day, and you too could benefit.

That's the message from Jim Aitken, FSB Membership Adviser in Stornoway.

He says: "As the FSB advisor in Stornoway, I talk to local businesses every day, listening to the concerns and challenges faced by smaller businesses in our region, and sharing with them the benefits that being a member of the largest business organisation in the UK can bring.

"In these unprecedented times, we're working tirelessly to support our members and small businesses as a whole, whether that be through representing your interests at the highest levels of government, or listening to your specific needs. There's a whole host of information on COVID-19 on our website, free to access for all businesses.

"FSB members benefit from additional support, such as expert advice on issues relating to insurance, employment and legal issues, and health and safety, available either through a professional advice line or a host of online documents and templates.

"I would be happy to discuss the full range of benefits and support available to you by setting up a virtual meeting, or discussing by phone.

"Thousands of businesses are currently benefiting from our services at this time when support is key, you could too.  Don't take my word for it, hear what some of our members say:

"It's great having the peace of mind knowing that there is always someone to turn to for advice should I need it." Anita Brakewell, Blackpool Model Village, Blackpool

"The main reason for joining the FSB was for the lobbying work it undertakes with local government on behalf of small businesses such as mine." Mark Brearley, Kayment, London
