The Forum actively engages with a community of 18,000 small businesses and champions their views and concerns with all levels of government, the media and the wider business community.
Small businesses make a massive contribution to the UK's economy - our key campaign aims are to highlight this and to lobby to make it simpler and more profitable to run a small firm.
The Forum was established by small business owners in 1977 as a lobbying group to fight for the fair treatment of small firms.
