By producing insightful, hard-hitting research and effective policy campaigns, we fight to create a better environment for the self-employed to run their businesses and ultimately, ensure our economy remains one of the most flexible in the world.
Our recent policy work has been some of the most significant in IPSE’s history, with repeat visits to Downing Street and our flagship Policy Conference attracting key decision-makers from Westminster and beyond. We are also here to give our members the help they need to run their businesses with peace of mind.

An event on the freelancer calendar that’s not to be missed. NFD offers a great selection of support that is designed to help freelancers manage, grow and develop their business, while they focus on the art of what they do.
NFD brings together service providers, contractors and small businesses to share experiences and learn from each other. The day was brilliantly organised and it’s highly recommended for both existing and aspiring businesses.
Loved the time out to build my knowledge and network in a great venue with the opportunity to soak up lots of relevant ideas, tips and best practice. Really appreciate the effort that went into delivering this event. Cannot wait for next year!
The atmosphere was wonderful. SO friendly, welcoming, inclusive and fun. I’d been nervous about attending on my own, but I needn’t have worried as it was so easy to talk to other attendees. I don’t know how you do it, but the IPSE magic means all your events are like being enveloped in a huge friendly hug. SO friendly.
Just a brilliant event. Well organised. Good speakers. Lots learnt. A success!
Such an inspiring day. Brilliant venue and really appreciated it being so easy to access from the north of England.
As someone who is new to freelancing, I found the National Freelancers Day event to be incredibly useful. Lots of practical tips, helpful advice, and great people. Thank you!
