Campaigns case studies

The Forum gives small businesses a voice in policy making. As well as lobbying MPs on behalf of our members, we also provide opportunities for them to express their views directly to government and decision makers.
 
Over the years, we've helped numerous members to get their issue heard by arranging meetings with MPs and Ministers, putting members in touch with their local paper, arranging radio interviews and inviting businesses to attend sessions in the House of Commons.

We've dealt with a wide range of issues from helping a member to highlight the difficulties of protecting intellectual property to supporting a business owner who had a shipment held by Customs because of an infestation of tropical spiders!

Below are some examples of how we've helped get members' views heard:
  • Our Referendum survey helped one member take his opinions all the way to the European Parliament. Read more »

  • Our intervention helped one member save £30,000 by challenging a local councils unfair health and safety ruling.
