Federation of Small Businesses announces new Area Lead for Lancashire

Following a member election late last year, Rachel Kay of lovelocalnetworking has been elected to the new role of The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Area Lead for Lancashire. Area Leads are a voluntary, strategic role with a tenure of three years which have been created to further support, engage and champion members in all areas across the country.

FSB is a not for profit organisation offering members a wide range of vital business services including advice, financial expertise, support and a powerful voice in Government. With a head office based in Blackpool, Lancashire the FSB has nearly 170,000 business members nationwide – some of whom choose to volunteer their time to support the organisation’s aim of helping smaller businesses achieve their ambitions.

Rachel said: “I have been an FSB member for many years and work to connect and support small businesses on a daily basis. Given how closely the values of my business align with those of the FSB it made real sense to apply for the Area Lead role. I’m very pleased to have been elected and to be working alongside the northwest regional team. My aim is to use my skills, knowledge and contacts to; help expand the events and workshop support available to members across the county; support and promote the FSB’s campaigns; ensure that members’ opinions and voices are carried to government and to make businesses aware of the countless benefits and low cost of FSB membership”.

FSB Business Development Manager for Lancashire, Paul Foster, said: “We are delighted that Rachel has been elected to Area Leader role and look forward to working with her to deliver and support great local events which small businesses can benefit from. Our new Area Leads will amplify the voice of small business owners locally, regionally and nationally through our media and policy work too, ensuring that FSB members are able to get help with external issues affecting their business. We are keen to engage with businesses across Lancashire to continue this support with Rachel’s help.”
