“Lockdown Fathers: The untold story”

Fatherhood Institute has just released a short video clip illustrating the key findings from their project about what Britain’s dads have been doing, and how they have been feeling, during the Covid-19 pandemic. The full report can be accessed here.

In our interviews, both mothers and fathers talked about how they made effort to adjust to the unprecedented situation of the pandemic and lockdown. Some of them highlighted that their division of childcare and work duties became more balanced with fathers getting more engaged in childcare – you can read about our preliminary findings here.

If you and your partner would like to share your story, we would love to hear from you! We are still looking for a few UK-based couples to take part in our online interviews:

  • 1 couple with a mother-primary caregiver and a father-primary breadwinner
  • 3-4 couples with a father-primary caregiver and a mother-primary breadwinner

If you are interested, please email Agata at awezyk@lincoln.ac.uk or use this link to complete a short survey and we will get back to you.
