1. Welcome

Welcome to the Small Business Britain Small Business Recovery survey 2021

As part of Small Business Britain's work over the last four years to uncover the real role of small businesses in communities and the economy, the Small Business: How To Recover will take an in-depth look at how small businesses have come through the pandemic and started to rebuild - a guide to how to recover as a business in 2022.

This survey will form part of that report and looks to understand how you and your business have got through 2021 and how you are looking to the future. It will examine what steps have been taken to keep the business going, adaptions ("pivots") made, any support received and outlook for the coming months and years. In particular, it will look at how you have overcome challenges.

Tips on recovery from small businesses will be shared throughout the winter via our website, social media and press to help other businesses find ways forward and grow in hope and ambition.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this quick survey - we know small businesses are incredibly busy! 

Thanks to TSB for their continued support of this research.
