WHAT WE DO

We Are ExcludedUK

ExcludedUK was launched on 15 May 2020 and soon after registered as a Community Interest Company. ExcludedUK exists to:

  • raise awareness of the 3 million UK taxpayers excluded from UK Government Covid-19 support
  • lobby for support and communicate the concerns of those excluded and wider messaging around the issues they face to relevant parliamentary bodies, MPs and industry bodies, while maintaining dialogue with them as well as with industry bodies
  • conduct research and data analysis to inform our advocacy, through publications and reports
  • provide a support mechanism those affected, facilitating advice and support where possible
  • signpost affected individuals and businesses to resources on mental health, counselling and well-being, business guidance and networking, debt advice, upskilling and training
  • provide and a safe space for discussion, to share stories and concerns, through a community forum and private Facebook group
