The self-employed and freelancers
Community is a proud champion of the over four million strong self-employed workers and freelancers across the UK. Together with our members, we are bringing together the self-employed and freelancer community to give you a collective voice. Through this, we’re lobbying for much needed change like extending sick pay, paid parental leave, and better health and safety protections for the self-employed, while maintaining the freedom and flexibility that your work brings.
The self-employed workforce is the hidden backbone of the UK economy, now making up almost 15% of the country’s workforce, driving innovation and delivering important services. While self-employment is the answer to finding a good work-life balance, we know it can also mean longer hours, less pay, insecurity, and financial worries – that’s where we come in.
