Coventry Telegraph:

Help is being offered to companies in Coventry and Warwickshire which have been forced to make redundancies.

With a wide variety of businesses making staff at all levels redundant due to the current economic downturn, the BFA is giving advice on franchising – which is essential to those looking at this as their next career step.

Brian Smart, director general of the BFA, said: “We have written to all of those organisations announcing redundancies to offer the BFA’s help in providing free sound advice to those individuals for whom business start-up might be an option. ”
