Nick meets with the local branch of the FSB

October 13, 2008

On Thursday evening I attended the networking meeting of the local branch of the Federation of Small Businesses.

The week had seen enormous turbulence in the financial markets and it is important for me to hear how local businesses are coping.

Whilst I work in the public sector, my parents ran a small family business in St Helens, where I am from, and so the issues and concerns raised by some of the FSB members were very familiar.

It is important for me to keep abreast of how local businesses are doing not just from an economic and political perspective but, as I mentioned at the meeting, it informs my own work.

In the local Crisis and Home Treatment Team, we often work with people who are suffering from stress and mental illness brought on by financial pressures and the responsibility of being self-employed.

It was an important meeting, and I intend to keep in touch.
