Self-Employed - Macmillan Cancer Support

Worries about work are very common for people affected by cancer. They may seem especially tough if you are self-employed or run your own business.

If you are self-employed, you may not have legal protection against discrimination. In some cases, you may be protected against discrimination if you are employed under a contract. This means there is an agreement between you and an employer that you will personally do work and be paid for it.

If you want to know how equality laws could help you, call our Work Support Service using the Macmillan Support Line for free on 0808 808 00 00.

Our advisers are available Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.

Financial Guidance Help Line

If you are self-employed the Macmillan Financial Guidance Help Line can provide free impartial guidance and support on all areas of personal finance, such as:




financial planning.

Access to benefits
