'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

York Branch Chairman Martyn Weller is a particularly good role model, volunteering for three charities. He’s completed a 12-year stint as Trustee of Disability Action Yorkshire, eight as Chairman; is a Trustee for Disabled Motorists UK; and is a Trustee and Treasurer of the N&W Yorkshire Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.
“I have been disabled since I was born with spina bifida,” he says. “My mum was on numerous local committees, so we were brought up with a culture of volunteering.”
His work has had a big impact in the Yorkshire area. “Our target group for Disability Action Yorkshire is ages 16-plus,” he says. “We provide training, accommodation in our residential home, holidays in our holiday property, and work experience as a social enterprise.
“We try to get people with all disabilities into full-time employment. We’ll help them achieve their goals in life, maybe something simple such as going to a nightclub or something more ambitious such as going handgliding. I once did 140 miles on a mobility scooter, raising money and highlighting the problems disabled people face using public transport.”
Martyn recently picked up the Trustee of the Year award from the Harrogate and District Volunteering Oscars, to add to an already impressive collection of gongs. “It’s really my hobby,” he says. “I don’t play sport or anything like that.”
It’s amazing he finds the time at all. In addition to running a successful pet services company, he’s also an active FSB organiser and a magistrate, having picked up yet another award in November as Magistrate Association Branch Officer of the Year.
