Although we’re told “nothing in life comes for free”, I believe that being self-employed comes with its own privilege of free time, and the opportunity to have complete creative agency over how you spend your time.
When I started my freelance journey, I wanted to be true to my values, whilst still being able to earn a comfortable living.
Pro bono work is something that is only available to registered charities/not for profits in the UK, and it’s my way of giving back, staying grounded and connecting with passion projects.
Each Pro bono client will be looked at on a case by case basis, and I’ll be supporting these organisations because I truly believe in their mission.
Everybody should be able to have access to great writing, right?
Please email me directly if you require pro bono support on: firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
Some of my Pro Bono work
I have been supporting Saint Francis Hospice since December 2020 on a Pro Bono basis for feature stories for their local paper as well as for their blog. You can see some samples below.
