ExcludedUK is a grassroots volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation working towards bringing about an end to the exclusions in the UK Government’s Covid-19 financial support measures across all employment statuses, circumstances, professions and industries. These exclusions have led to significant disparities within the support offered, resulting in unfairness, injustice, discrimination and severe hardship for those affected.

Covid-19 and the ensuing lockdown presented the most unforeseen challenges to many individuals and businesses across the UK. While government support packages have provided much needed support for many, there remain some 3 million taxpayers – 10% of the UK workforce, who have found themselves excluded from meaningful support, leaving large cracks within these measures.

As an organisation, we aim to play a crucial role in facilitating support and assistance on multiple levels, both for now and into the future - raising awareness through press and media, lobbying relevant parliamentary bodies, MPs, and industry bodies, signposting towards resources on mental health, counselling and well-being, business guidance and networking, debt advice, upskilling and training, and fundraising in order to seek to provide such support. Most importantly, our hope is that our efforts can help propel affected individuals and businesses forward in the face of adversity resulting from Covid-19 and being excluded from government support, while equally working together in seeking to help each other emerge from this crisis.


You are not alone.
