Freelancer Toolkit

Remote Working during COVID-19
How to ride out the coronavirus outbreak

The COVID-19 crisis is making life difficult for freelancers and companies all over the world. So many people are remote working for the first time.

Over 550 people have helped pull together this guide:

Have remote working advice?

We want to crowd-source helpful advice for clients and freelancers during the COVID-19 crisis. This will cover tools, work processes, mental health, finding work, good news sources on COVID-19, and preparing for post-COVID-19.

We've made this micro-site which will house all the information. We want this to be a living guide, that changes as we learn more remote working and COVID-19.
