Make a Difference

If you are passionate about employment rights and cross-cultural integration, you can make a difference at the Work Rights Centre.


Thousands of people work in poorly paid, unprotected and insecure jobs, providing a cheap and flexible labour force, while having close to no job security. Many are trapped in false self-employment or cash in hand jobs that offer no financial stability, and no access to basic rights such as maternity pay or leave. EU workers in particular remain invisible to the third sector and local authorities, having nothing to rely on but personal networks and their own, proverbial, hard work.

A small donation to our cause, or a few hours of volunteering with our team could help put an end to poorly paid, unprotected, and insecure employment.

Donate

Your contributions will help us lift British and EU nationals out of precarious work. All donations will contribute to supporting our one-to-one sessions, and the dissemination of our workers' guides to employment rights.
