The Forum of Private Business is a not-for-profit comprehensive business support organisation founded in 1977. Our membership is spread throughout the UK and primarily made up of companies that employ between 1-50 employees, helping them to manage employees, saving time, giving advice, support and protection where a business needs it.

We are a recognised leading authority on business issues and represent the interests of business owners on many consultative bodies. We have built a solid reputation, being influential in many areas of policy-making, in changing laws that affect small businesses, and we continue to campaign for the fair treatment of businesses within the UK.

Business landscapes have certainly changed over the years and so too have the needs of our members. In order to stay relevant as a member based business support organisation we have, evolved our support and services to meet our members’ requirements.

We are dedicated to providing our members with solid business advice, support and protection helping business owners to focus on profitability, growth and long-term business success.

Our dedicated 24/7 business support service enables Forum members to call up any time of the day or night to talk through their issue with a friendly advisor. This support service gives our members peace of mind which is important when you are running a business. Business owners do not have the time to know everything which is why Forum members have a big advantage over other businesses.

Everything we do is about making sure our members’ businesses operate profitably. This means that every penny we make goes back into supporting our members, providing the support and resources that will enable businesses to flourish and grow.

We are the Forum of Private Business, celebrating 40 years in business 1977-2017
