This webinar brought together four projects which have all asked participants to keep diaries to chart everyday life in 2020. This webinar explores how family life has been affected by the pandemic, and reflected on what we have learned through and across these four projects.

Host Alex Beer is joined by a number of leading sector experts to hear key findings from each project, as well as from some of those who have been keeping diaries; documenting a historic year for their family but also for the UK.

Throughout the discussion, the group reflect on the value and some of the challenges of using diaries in social research, and assess the impact of the pandemic on modern families across the UK.

Speakers at this webinar included:
– Michaela Rhode from Britain Thinks on their Coronavirus Diaries project
– Dr Eve Avdoulos from The Young Foundation on how intergenerational relationships and responsibilities have changed as a result of COVID-19
– Dr Ruth Patrick, Dr Maddy Power (University of York) and Victoria (diary participant) on early findings from the COVID-19 Realities project
– Sara Rizzo from Ecorys on young people’s experiences of growing up under COVID-19
– Responding and reflecting on the policy consequences arising from these diary projects was Kathy Evans (Children’s England).
