At 14 theres very few things you can do beside a paper round due to the number of laws surrounding it. Also you're not entitled to minimum wage so an employer could pay you £1 an hour if they wish,

Maybe try local cafes to see if you can work in the potwash or something?

99% of places wont take on under 16's. Basically because a) there are a lot of laws surrounding employing under 16's and b) because you dont have a national insurance number. So its not that they arent being fair.
Your best bet is a paper round.

I'm 15 and I have a job cleaning offices with a business called Contact Cleaners. Maybe there's something similar to that in your area? I know a lot of other people in my class (either 15 or 16) with waitress jobs as well.
I did babysitting when I was 14 for my neighbour so that might not be an option for you, idk.

Babysitting, dog walking, maybe a local cafe, doing chores for your neighbours / family.
