Video Tutorial – How to register for the Ready for Business Register

Interested in registering for the RfB Register but not sure where to begin? In this easy to follow video we run through the registration steps and what information is required. The P4P Register is open, can be viewed widely and organisations self -select and include their details onto the Register.

P4P will go out to those listed on the register annually and request that organisations update their information and will make every effort to keep the register ‘fresh’.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
