You can contact us via [email protected]

Patchwork Hub provides a specialised online platform which enables users who require talent (“Employers”) to post job opportunities (both freelance and full time) and connect with individuals and businesses who have registered via the Site to provide their services to such Employers. Such individuals and businesses that provide services to Employers are known as “Patchworkers”. In these Terms, references to “you”, “your” and “user” are references to the Patchworkers and Employers who are registered on the Site. 

By using the Site, you agree that these Terms apply to your use of the Site in addition to any other terms and conditions which may apply, including the Patchwork Hub Privacy Statement ( and the Patchwork Hub Cookie Policy ( If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not use the Site. 

These Terms were last updated on 2 April 2024. We amend these Terms from time to time. Please check this page of the Site periodically. If in our view any change significantly affects your rights or obligations, we shall notify you of such changes, and such changes shall take effect 30 days after the date of notification. 

1. Patchwork Hub services and limitations

1.1 Our Site is currently only directed to people residing in the United Kingdom. We do not represent that our Site is appropriate for use or available in other locations.

1.2 We are not party to any agreement entered into between Employers and Patchworkers. We have no control over any Employer’s decision to initiate or terminate a Patchworker’s engagement or employment and we do not take any responsibility for such decisions. Any disputes arising between Employers and Patchworkers must be settled between the relevant Employer and Patchworker, and Patchwork Hub disclaims all liability in this respect, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

1.3 We may conduct identity verification checks (including but not limited to reference checks). However, due to the difficulty of fully verifying information provided over the Internet, we cannot guarantee the authenticity or completeness of identity information provided by users.

1.4 We do not select or propose specific tasks or employment for or to Patchworkers. Rather, we offer an online platform that enables Patchworkers to seek paid tasks or employment, and enables Employers to offer available paid tasks or employment to Patchworkers.

1.5 We do not direct or control the job, tasks or roles performed by Patchworkers and both Employers and Patchworkers understand that Patchworkers have complete discretion whether and when to provide services, and at what price and on what terms, to Employers.

1.6 Patchwork Hub integrates Stripe Connect (part of Stripe Payments UK Limited) as an authorised third party payments services provider for the Site. If Stripe Connect no longer has the appropriate authorisations and/or permissions to provide payment services for the Site, Patchwork Hub reserves the right to replace Stripe Connect with a third party payments services provider that is validly authorised by the relevant supervisory authority.  For the avoidance of doubt, Patchwork Hub itself does not offer any payment services in relation to the Site.
