It is designed and maintained to enable you to validate the credentials of the advisers, coaches, consultants, mentors and trainers you choose to ensure they have up-to-date, relevant qualifications and valuable experience.

In developing and providing the Directory our core belief is the need to engage the views of micro and small businesses ensuring their opinions on the business and enterprise support they receive is taken into account.

As a result, as part of our Verified Status, business and enterprise support professionals are required to submit testimonials as part of their application.

This ensures that those professionals accredited through the SFEDI Directory don't just understand how to provide support but also how to put their knowledge into practice.
