WBS Members Survey – Covid19 Impact

Earlier this week, the Federation of Small Businesses revealed that a third of Scottish small businesses which have shut down during the Covid19 outbreak may never re-open.

The FSB survey of 5,471 UK small business owners, including 758 in Scotland, found that 53% of Scottish firms had been forced to close since the beginning of the outbreak, compared to 41% on average across the UK.   Of those which have closed – both in Scotland and across the UK – 35% are not sure whether they will ever reopen again.

Okay, we admit that makes very bleak reading.

However, with any challenge, there is opportunity.
Here at Women’s Business Station (WBS), our ambition and passion to support you in your drive to build a business, big or small, is stronger than ever!

We are looking to establish the impact of Covid19 on our audiences, gaining a clearer picture of how YOUR business (or your plans to start one) have been affected by the pandemic and how our approach, as your cheerleaders, might need to change as a result.

This survey is anonymous and  should take no longer than 7-10 mins.  Please be reassured that your information and data provided will be kept confidential.  The results will be collated into a report which will be shared with WBS members and may form part of a press story in the weeks ahead.
