Surviving COVID as a freelancer or self-employed

Are you directly or financially affected by COVID?

A few of us are collecting our thoughts on the implications for freelancers and self-employed. We’re putting them here. We’ve turned comments on (but public editing off) and we’d value your input, questions and ideas please.

If you’ve come across any sector specific advice (BECTU and IPSE have both published some) we’d love to add that too.

REQUEST – One of the holes we’ve not managed very well to fill is how freelancers who could in theory go to a place of work (for work that can’t be done from home e.g. teaching in schools) but can’t go because of their own underlying health conditions (eg asthma) or those of the people they share a house with. Will sick pay from an employer cover them? How long for etc etc
