Survey 1 - questions for freelancers and the self-employed - mapping the creative freelance workforce
One in seven workers in the UK economy is now self-employed. This figure rises to almost half in the creative industries.
These self-employed creatives - freelancers, consultants, entrepreneurs, sole-traders - make a crucial contribution to the creative economy but are misunderstood and overlooked in policy-making.
This survey is intended to gather information about these individuals to better inform policy-makers of their needs and the way they contribute to the economy.
Please complete this survey if you work on a self-employed basis in the creative industries, whether this is as a freelancer, sole-trader, maker, artist - to contribute to the Creative Industries Federation's report.
We appreciate responses from all Federation members, as well as self-employed workers who are affiliated with Federation members.
Your responses are entirely confidential. We will identify you in our material only if you agree to this at the end of the survey.
