This report examines a range of issues surrounding socio-economic practices of coping with hardship – the way in which a household can provide for its own upkeep, survival and prosperity in times of crisis – as demonstrated and reported by participants from a series of semi-structured interviews in urban and rural locations. It explores the narratives of hardship, the factors that (re)produce the physical reality and reported experiences as well as the practices of coping with hardship in the UK. Finally, the report discusses the detrimental consequences resilience, in terms of health and wellbeing, financial stability and social relations which the term resilience may conceal.
