Full details of discounts available on the following are available within the members' area.

Please note that the benefits listed here are optional. The services and products, and their providers, are not preferred suppliers and are not ‘recommended’ by the SfEP but have been included if we think they will be useful to members. You should always shop around to see if you can get a better deal another way. The providers have offered discounts to us, or we have been able to negotiate benefits on behalf of our members. Not all benefits will be relevant or available to all members, so please check whether they are suitable for you, your business and your location.
