The reason why/ case for taking part.....

 

Working from home has also been a significant factor in increased poor mental and physical health as workers are no longer moving as much as they did prior to lockdown and working longer hours in-front of a computer.
They also identified the added stress of being parents, having to become teachers to support their children, no support with child care, and a strain on the household finances. Even within a two-parent household the stress has increased significantly and is also having a knock-on effect on the parents' romantic relationship.

These stresses are significantly increased within lone parent households with the added factor of loneliness and heightened anxiety.
