New Government survey asks freelancers for help

The Department for Work and Pensions has launched a new survey to let people have their say on what stops or discourages them from being self-employed.

The findings will then form the basis for a new government-backed website for freelancers.

The survey, titled ‘Could you be your own boss?’ looks at the barriers to self-employment and the problems people who encounter when starting out. The DWP says the surveywill help officials “gain a greater understanding” of how people view self-employment.

The eight question survey would be suitable for those new to freelancing and individuals who have enjoyed a long stint as self-employed.

A DWP statement read: “The government is committed to encouraging people to work for themselves and to see self-employment as a viable route off benefits. We want to hear from you and by answering these quick questions you will really help us to provide people with the best possible help and advice”.
