Hear from three speakers – all either existing freelancers or previously freelancers – who have used the co-op model to benefit their work and security.

It makes good business sense for self-employed people to join forces, form co-ops and enjoy benefits such as shared costs, resources, knowledge and expertise. Co-ops enable their members to have access to fairer, more decent work, as well as a share of the profits. And by coming together, freelancers can bid for larger scale tenders, gain access to new markets and innovate through sharing creative ideas.

Watch this webinar with:

  • Aysha Haq, Chapel Street Studio – a co-operative of creative freelancers in Bradford
  • Steven Flower, Open Data Services – a worker co-op that was formed when freelance analysts and IT professionals joined forces to create open data standards and tools
  • John Gibson, Felt Nowt Productions – a co-op of stand-up comedians in the North East of England
