Survey to Understand the Impact of Covid-19 on the Mental Health of Creative Freelancers

The Hub UK and the Creative Industries Federation are looking to develop a new, totally free, mental health support programme – and your answers to their ten-minute survey can help them build something that meets your needs.

The survey has been launched to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week, and will be running until 7 June. The support program wants to know how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted your mental health and your career/business.

They plan to use their findings to help shape BALANCE, a series of online talks they’ll be launching in June – alongside the Creative Industries Federation – around how freelancers, artists and others running their own creative companies can better balance their minds and their books.

When you enter, you’ll also be entered into a prize draw. The Hub UK will donate £100 to the winner’s mental health or arts charity or crowdfunder of choice.

Answers are confidential and the survey should take around 10 minutes to complete. It will be closing on 7 June.
