All in this together? What impact is lockdown having on how families spend their time?

Lockdown has presented huge unique challenges to families. Mothers and fathers are having to juggle work with childcare, home-schooling and housework. Children are learning in completely different environments to what they are used to and require more and different resources to support their learning.

At this event, IFS researchers will present their recent findings based on newly collected data from a sample of 4000 families across England, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. They will look at how families are managing day to day to balance old and new demands on their time, as well as whether and how this differs by socio-economic status and gender.
