Online book launch, Wednesday 19th October, 7.30pm

Between 2020 and 2022, over 100 parents and carers living on a low came together online, sharing experiences in diaries, and working together to develop a manifesto for change.

A Year Like No Other: Life on a Low Income during COVID-19 is a book that emerged from this collaboration. Co-written with parents and carers, the book provides a compelling account of lives during a national crisis, within the context of the everyday crisis that poverty brings.

Please join us online as we launch this book, celebrating the work of parents and carers involved in Covid Realities, and discussing why change is now needed more than ever.

The launch will feature participants reading from the book, as well as responses from Kerry Hudson (author), Professor Kate Pickett (University of York) and John Harris (The Guardian). The launch will be co-chaired by Alison Garnham (CPAG) and Ruth Patrick.

The first 10 people to sign up to attend our launch will receive a free copy of the book.
