Support self-employed people during coronavirus

Give all self-employed people equivalent support to that given to businesses and other workers. No one should be left worse off or with no support during the coronavirus crisis.

Why is this important?

Last Friday, the UK government promised billions of pounds in support for workers - but when this announcement was made, self-employed workers seemed to slip through the cracks.

Around five million of us working in the UK are self-employed. And right now, these workers are being left without equal support during the coronavirus pandemic.

Schemes that help busineses keep afloat and ensure people can still receive their wages should be extended to self-employed workers as well.

Right now, rumours are swirling that the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, might announce plans to help self-employed people. But the risk is that he won’t go far enough, and self-employed workers will still be left out of pocket.
