MP supports small business start-up campaign

14th August 2018

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has offered her support to a campaign to encourage more people to set up small businesses.

The Federation of Small Business has launched a campaign – ‘Think Self-Employed’ - to help more people to start up their own enterprise.

The FSB has also suggested a range of measures which can help people to become self-employed ahead of the Budget later this year.

Harriett commented: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and I support the Federation’s efforts to encourage more people to consider self-employment.

“Nine out of ten businesses in West Worcestershire are micro-businesses with fewer than nine employees and these are the sort of companies that were started up in people’s garages and back bedrooms as they take the leap into self-employment.

“Worcestershire has a great track-record for helping new start-ups to grow fast and there are many examples of local businesses which have gone on to achieve great things.

“Self-employment can be very satisfying for some and I look forward to meeting up with the FSB to hear the results of this campaign.”
