A New Deal for Parents

Material struggles are preventing young people from having the families they want, when they want.

Both the housing and cost of living crises fall hardest on young families, while prospective parents struggle to access the fertility assistance they need. Onward research has already analysed the UK’s broken childcare system, making clear both the financial pressures it piles on parents and the barriers it erects in the path of those keen to start a family.

This panel will discuss the nature of the problem, how we got here, and what needs to change to make it easier to be a parent in the UK.
