University seeks help with intergenerational research project

Researchers from the University of Birmingham are seeking your help in recruiting families to take part in a major new study on intergenerational relations.  If you were born between 1945-1965 and have an adult child aged 18 or above, and a parent of any age in good health you are eligible to take part in an exciting new academic study being conducted by the University of Birmingham.

The study, ‘Giving and Receiving Financial Support Within Families in the 21st Century’, aims to gain a better understanding of the way families support each other financially across generations. These issues are particularly relevant given the current economic climate and the pressures on family finances. At least one person from each of the three generations in the same family will be interviewed separately (i.e. a young person; their parent(s) and grandparent(s) generation) for about an hour. This type of study including three generations of the same family is very rare. As a thank-you for taking part each person will receive £20. We are particularly keen to interview families from a range of income levels, ethnic backgrounds and housing tenures.

If you would like to take part or find out more, please get in touch with Ricky Joseph at CHASM
