A new survey has been launched as part of efforts to improve conditions for creative freelancers.
The Redesigning Freelancing survey has been launched by creative industries network Creative UK working in partnership with nine combined local authorities in England.
Creative UK hopes to gather information that will help it address issues such as the economic uncertainty that comes with freelancing.
Caroline Norbury, CEO of Creative UK said that current difficulties “means we risk losing the next generation of creative freelancers – particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds”.
She added: “It is our collective responsibility to ensure more is done to protect our freelancers, integrate them with organisations in order to build better partnerships, and make sure there is a fair and equal playing field.
“This survey will help us to identify the key priorities that need action now.”
