Summary: A recent KIS Finance survey has revealed some shocking statistics on people’s financial concerns relating to lockdown restrictions easing and the pressure to socialise again.
•38.1% of people are concerned over pressure from friends and family to go out and make the most of being out of lockdown when they can’t afford it.
•52.8% of those aged 18-24 are fearing post-lockdown social pressures after being one of the groups most affected financially by the pandemic.
•34.3% of people are worried about losing their jobs in the coming months. This is either due to their workplace not surviving after lockdown or being made redundant when the furlough scheme ends in September.
