About us

The membership body for you

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.

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. IPSE members have access to legal advice, cover for sickness and many of the benefits employees receive. We work with partner organisations to offer members best in class services so you can spend more time running your business. Click here to find out more about the benefits you’ll receive as an IPSE member. 

Mission

IPSE’s mission is to represent and promote the interests of the UK’s self-employed population. We achieve this through a comprehensive policy agenda, research programme and services to members which make the lives of self-employed professionals easier.  We endeavour to be the most appreciated source of protection and information for independent professionals in the UK. We work to provide legislators and regulators with authoritative and comprehensive policies to enhance the ability of freelancers, contractors and independent professionals to succeed.
