This chapter focuses on the impacts of the pandemic on individuals and families in the UK, with a specific focus on keyworkers. We present emerging research and the early findings from an ongoing study, “Families un-locked”, with a specific focus on how frontline keyworkers have coped during the pandemic and the impacts on their families. The chapter takes a family resilience perspective and highlights implications for future research and practice.
