Young Parents in London: Living with Precariousness

April 27 2018, TUC Congress Centre

There are 37,400 parents aged 25 and under in London, 8% of the total number in England. London has a smaller number of young parents compared to other regions in England but those that are living here are struggling more. More young parents in London live in poverty and social exclusion than their peers anywhere else in the country. The new research from 4in10 and Partnership for Young London highlights the experiences of parents in London aged 25 and under, specifically focusing on the challenges and opportunities London’s young parents face entering the workplace and maintaining employment.
