Young Parents in London: Living with Precariousness
Updated: May 30, 2019
This research sets out to address this gap in the knowledge and to understand the experiences of parents in London aged 25 and under, specifically focusing on the challenges and opportunities London’s young parents face entering the workplace and maintaining employment.
We found that, whilst being a parent under 25 does not mean a young person and their family will inevitably live in poverty or experience financial precariousness, young parents are facing multiple complex and intersecting challenges particular to their age, location and circumstance. These challenges may impact their financial stability and security, and we shall explore these and how they can be overcome in greater detail throughout this report.
