Why families on a low income are spending more during Covid-19
A recent briefing published by the Resolution Foundation finds that many low-income families report spending more, not less, since Covid-19 gripped the nation in spring 2020.
The briefing highlights that low-income families are facing increased financial pressure and increased core costs as a result Covid-related disruptions (including school closures, social distancing etc)
The briefing brings together the findings from two online surveys of a representative sample of working-age adults in the UK fielded by the Resolution Foundation in May and September 2020, and a number of vivid accounts from parents and carers themselves, drawn from the ongoing ‘Covid Realities’ participatory research programme.'
