What kind of work can I do?

If you are 13 the rules are strict – you can only do light work. On the whole you can do things like newspaper delivery, shop work, working in an office, a hairdressers, riding stables or hotels.   You can work on a farm or doing gardening if it is work for your parents or carers.

If you are 14 you can do more things, but still only work that is light work. You can sell on the street but the rules are pretty strict and you need a licence to do it, so be careful.
