Covid Realities was launched in April 2020 to document the experiences of parents and carers living on low incomes during the pandemic. While the project was due to end in December 2021 (with our final report published in January 2022), the scale of the emerging cost of living crisis meant we felt it necessary to continue to document everyday life on a low-income. This briefing reports on findings from this additional work, which ran from November 2021 to March 2022, and which involved online diaries, responses to video elicited questions and participatory online discussion groups.1 Significantly, the recommendations that we share have been developed by parents and carers on a low-income, who are central to Covid Realities.
