National Freelancers Day 2011

NFD 2011, a day to focus on the opportunities that freelancing offers to individuals, to organisations and to the economy, a day to connect and enhance the knowledge of the freelance community.

NFD is all about Freelancing, a chance to highlight the value and contribution of the UK Freelance Sector, 1.56 million people who really are a fundamental to the economy in the UK and our prospects of recovery.

Last year the message reached over 1 million people and supporters included Prime Minister David Cameron. This year let’s make it bigger – your support will help to spread this message even further.
