What were the key findings of our research?


This is why Leapers exists

To make modern work more supportive for modern workers.

We focus on mental health of freelancers: offering a community of support + tangible things to help you work well; plus insight and advice for those who want to work better with freelancers.

We'll be using these insights to help guide what we do as a community - the areas we focus on, the resources and tools we develop, and critically, to raise awareness of the importance of considering your own mental health when freelancing.

Additionally - we will be working with organisations who work with freelancers, to point at the behaviours which might create stress and anxiety for our community, so that we can collectively improve how we work together well.
