The Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry wants all businesses, no matter how small, to take part in its Quarterly Economic Survey.

If you are a local business owner it's time to have your say on the need for better funding and support.

The Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry wants all businesses, no matter how small, to take part in its Quarterly Economic Survey.

Results of the study can be used to influence government decisions on a local and national level.

DCCI chief executive Ian Girling said: "Recent surveys have identified such issues as skills shortages, housing needs and recruitment problems at a local level.

"It has never been so important for businesses to have their say, especially with Brexit negotiations due to begin.

"Dorset's business community has an excellent reputation nationwide for its drive and entrepreneurial spirit.

"Our views are taken very seriously at local and national level and I would urge businesses of all sizes and types to take part. For the short time it takes to fill in a survey form, there is a tremendous benefit for us as a Dorset business community and as a county."

As Dorset's leading business support organisation, DCCI also uses the results to tailor the help it offers to its 800 members countywide as well as feed back to such organisations as the LEP.

Lorna Carver, director of Dorset LEP, said: "Detailed information of this calibre is vital to help the LEP drive economic growth, jobs and skills.

"I would encourage all businesses to take part so we can have as accurate and persuasive information as possible to press the county's case for funding and support."
