Disabled entrepreneurs are an essential part of the UK economy, with disabled-owned small businesses accounting for 8.6 per cent of the turnover of all UK businesses.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) have just released an important new report – ‘Business Without Barriers’ - on the issues facing small business owners with a disability or a health condition.
It reveals the high number of people running SMEs who have a condition and looks at some of the restrictions they may face because of it. It also offers some ideas and recommendations to make access to entrepreneurship easier for people with a condition.
As well as releasing the report, the FSB has also created a new online ‘hub’ on the subject open to all and you can view the hub and download our report in full at Business Without Barriers.
