Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) have announced plans to help boost small and medium-sized businesses in Chorleywood and other places in the area through the funding of free membership for the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
The decision has been taken as part of the council’s continued measures to help local industry recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns, with the memberships being given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Joining the FSB makes businesses eligible for a large range of benefits to help them thrive, including a platform for funding, employment advice and protection, debt recovery and a medical care helpline.
There is also an award-winning legal advice team at hand, and it provides businesses with a range of events and networking opportunities to help them further their reach.
Geof Muggeridge, Director of Community & Environmental Services at Three Rivers District Council, said: “We want to do everything we can to help small businesses across Three Rivers grow and thrive in the months and years ahead.
“Small businesses form the very heart and soul of our communities, and we want to do all we can to ensure they are able to grow and thrive. This new scheme is another example of this council’s commitment to that.”
