Life events research
In 2021 we undertook research to understand the impact of life events on people’s finances, how they cope, and what measures they need to support them.
If we’ve learned anything from the coronavirus pandemic, it’s that life-changing events can shatter our well-being and can happen to any one of us; at any time.
This new research is a significant step in understanding the impact of life events on people’s finances, how they cope, and what measures they need to support them. This understanding is vital if we are to help them get back on their feet in the wake of a life event. The research explores a broad range of events that have an impact on people’s finances in the areas of health, work, family, housing and legal circumstances.
