Many of the 4.6 million self employed people in the UK will lose their homes and livelihoods during this next forced lockdown because they are not treated the same as employees on PAYE.

The employee furlough scheme has covered every month during this pandemic. The Self Employment Grant Scheme does not cover September & October 2020.  These need to be covered!  

The Self Employment Grant Scheme should cover every single month inline with the Furlough scheme.

Many self employed work in the arts, music and entertainment industries as well as health and leisure which are the hardest hit by the pandemic. Many gyms are closing permanently and face uncertain futures. We need to bring the self employed grant scheme in line with furlough payments now!

We are petitioning the government to make the self employment grant cover all months during the pandemic.
