The ‘Doomeranger’ Generation

A sixth of UK adults have moved back in with their parents

The research has found that 14% of UK adults have moved back in with their parents for six months or more. A quarter (25%) moved back in due to a bad break-up and over a tenth (13%) because they needed help with childcare.

However, the main reason for moving back was due to financial pressure, where half (55%) said they moved back due to factors such as rising rent prices, saving up to buy a property or to pay off debts.

Interestingly, men are more likely to move back in with their parents after a divorce or separation (16% versus 12% for women).
