Welcome to our research community
Here you, our members, can have your say and share your experiences on behalf of the self-employed population.
Government ministers, politicians and the Bank of England use our research to inform their positionings. We also work hard to make sure that the voice of the self-employed is picked up in the media, so the challenges and concerns of the sector are widely understood.
We run regular research throughout the year to help understand the issues facing the sector and help back up our policy positionings. It is crucial that we have evidence to back up everything we say to give it validity. That’s where you come in – join our research community today and help us represent the sector as best as we can.
