Policy & Advocacy Priorities
We champion the priorities of our Federation members, working with them to influence both policy and practice.
We unite all parts of the UK’s Creative Industries with one powerful voice, keeping government to account and campaigning for change.
Through consultation with our members, we have set three policy priorities for 2022-23: Redesigning Freelancing, Accessing Finance and Championing Creative Skills.
Shaped by our members, partners and Freelance Champions, Redesigning Freelancing is a UK-wide initiative which will empower organisations and freelancers working across the creative economy to tackle inequalities and create a more sustainable future for our growing workforce.
We want to ensure that a much greater diversity of creative entrepreneurs can access the finance they need to thrive, innovate and grow. Our Accessing Finance project will undertake crucial research to identify challenges and growth opportunities faced by those across the Creative Industries, and propose solutions in consultation with members.
There is a member advisory group for this project, which will shape the research, discuss the outcomes and generate ideas for action – to get involved, find out more about our Federation membership.
Championing Creative Skills
Working with members and partners, we will shape and deliver a UK-wide campaign which will aim to increase positive sentiment toward the value of creative jobs among those who influence the career choices of young people – parents, guardians, teachers and cultural influencers – to unlock new talent and diversify the sector’s talent pipeline.
To work with us in shaping this campaign and partner with us on its delivery, members can join our Creative Skills and Futures Network. Find out more about our Federation membership.
