If you’re one of the more than 4,600 small business owners in the City of Fremantle, you’re set to benefit from the city’s commitment to our Small Business Friendly Local Government (SBFLG) initiative.

By signing the SBFLG charter, the City of Fremantle has become one of 37 local government authorities (LGAs) to commit to working with, and supporting, small business owners.

As part of the City’s commitment to supporting small businesses, they will:

  • deliver a capacity building service for small businesses
  • seek business input into the City’s destination marketing strategy
  • inform businesses of grant opportunities.

Are you a business owner in the City of Fremantle?

Contact the City if you’d like to find out more about the support available to local businesses or to provide feedback on the support you’d like to see them provide.

About the SBFLG program

The SBFLG initiative was developed to recognise the LGAs that are committed to actively supporting small businesses in their local area.

By signing up to the initiative, LGAs agree to identify, improve and review key strategies in order to deliver better services and build closer relationships with their local small businesses.

More than 131,000 small businesses – close to 59% of the State’s small businesses – are supported by their LGA through SBFLG.

Find out more about the SBFLG program, and whether your LGA has signed the charter and details of their commitments to local small businesses.
