Understanding the financial impact of COVID-19 on UK households
Date and time: Wednesday 15 July 2020 | 1-2pm (BST)
The economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic will be felt in almost all UK households, both now and long into the future. Many people are experiencing dramatic changes in their circumstances as a result of the crisis. Unemployment, furloughing on reduced income, and loss of self-employed earnings, will be affecting different households in different ways, and for lots of people, saving will naturally have fallen further down the financial priority list.
In this conversation, we want to understand this current financial reality for low- and moderate-income households. What impact are we seeing on income, debt, consumption and savings behaviours? Which groups should we be most worried about? And as we start to emerge from lockdown, what should industry and policymakers bear in mind as they think about supporting households into short- and long-term financial security?
