Policy Workshop: Housing in Young Adulthood

London, 12 September 2017

Policy Workshop:

Housing in young adulthood: Changing choices, constraints and challenges

London, 12 September 2017

Young adulthood is a dynamic life phase and the housing position of young people has changed dramatically in recent decades. New choices concerning education, work, relationships and lifestyles have combined with the constraints imposed by low incomes, economic insecurity, curtailed welfare support and enhanced problems of housing access to reduce young adults’ homeownership and increase their reliance on private renting and the parental home. These trends have major implications for young people’s everyday lives, long-term housing careers and the future social and economic structure of British society.

This afternoon workshop will bring together academics, policy professionals and stakeholders to (1) share and discuss the latest evidence about young adults’ housing and (2) debate key policy challenges and solutions concerning housing in young adulthood. The workshop is organised under the auspices of an Economic and Social Research Council project on Family Trajectories and Young Adults’ Housing Transitions.
