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 â€“ which is essential to those looking at this as their next career step.
Brian Smart, director general of the BFA, said: â€œWe have written to all of those organisations announcing redundancies to offer the BFAâ€™s help in providing free sound advice to those individuals for whom business start-up might be an option. â€
