Small Business Friendly Council

In our commitment to support local businesses, the City of Unley is part of the Small Business Friendly Council Initiative, a program of the Office of the Small Business Commissioner that is specifically designed to assist with fostering relationships with and supporting small business.

We recognise that small business owners and operators create local employment, provide essential goods and services and help create attractive, liveable communities. We are excited to be a part of this program as we commit through a Charter Agreement to support small businesses by adopting eight initiatives that drive local economic development.
