Participants needed for new CHASM research project

CHASM seeks help with research project on family support

Researchers from the Centre on Household Assets and Savings Management in the College of Social Sciences 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, have a child aged 18 or above, and a parent of any age in good health you are eligible to take part.

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 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.

If you would like to take part or find out more, please get in touch with Ricky Joseph at CHASM on 0121 414 7233 or r.joseph@bham.ac.uk
