If you’re one of the 291 small business owners in the Shire of Waroona, you’re set to benefit from the Shire’s commitment to our Small Business Friendly Local Government (SBFLG) initiative.

By signing the SBFLG charter, the Shire of Waroona has become the 20th local government authority (LGA) to commit to working with, and supporting, small business owners.

As part of the Shire of Waroona’s commitment to supporting small businesses, they will be:

  • working closely with the Peel Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • promoting local purchasing and procurement
  • supporting local business forums and events
  • improving their website and establishing an online business directory.

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, local governments agree to identify, improve and review key strategies in order to deliver better services and build closer relationships with their local small businesses.

Around 81,500 small businesses - more than 36% of the State’s small businesses – are already supported by their local council through SBFLG.

Find out more about the SBFLG program, including if your local government has signed the charter and what their commitments to local small businesses are.
