LOBBYING & CAMPAIGNING ACTIVITY
The AOP has been lobbying and campaigning hard on behalf of their freelance and self-employed members, and together with the British Photographic Council a package of support is being discussed, debated and fast-tracked through Parliament as part of the Coronavirus Bill. More updates to come on this.
I hope this information may be helpful in these extraordinary times. For more updates from the AOP please checkout their twitter feed.
