How do people on lower incomes in regional, peri-urban and urban locations experience and respond to financial challenges?

This qualitative study, part of the Understanding financial stress project, is being conducted with low and middle-income households in several local government areas in Victoria.

The aim of the research is to understand more about financial hardship and what can be done about it. We want to learn how people make ends meet and why it may be difficult. Our findings will provide evidence to support advocacy for fairer policies to help people who are doing it tough.

This research is being conducted by Margaret Kabare and Dina Bowman .

It is part of the Understanding financial stress project and also of wider research and policy work within The SEED Project.
