Representing, protecting and supporting. Welcome to the home of freelancers and the self-employed

IPSE, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed, is the voice of the UK’s self-employed population who make up one in seven people working today.

We make sure freelancers, interim managers, consultants and contractors are represented to Government. 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.

See what past attendees had to say

As much as I love face to face, this was the best NFD I’ve attended so far! Really informative sessions, love the app and have made some great connections with it. Also, joyous not to have to travel! Thanks IPSE!

 Yes. That was great. I’ve been to a couple of virtual events this year and this was by far the most informative and the most smoothly run. Thank you everyone!

  Thank you for organising such a brilliant day & all the work you do to support the self-employed

This is the first time I’ve attended NFD and I’m so glad I did! I do hope a virtual element will be retained for the future as it means so many more people can participate. Thank you!

 I found all the sessions I have attended so far very informative with good hints and tips. The mental health session gave me some ideas on how to connect with other freelancers.
