Young people’s residential experiences and housing careers have changed dramatically in recent decades. These trends have major implications for young people’s everyday lives, as well as the future social and economic structure of British society.

housing in young adulthood

An afternoon workshop organised by "Family trajectories and young adults’ housing transitions" Project brought together a diverse group of researchers, policy professionals, housing practitioners and stakeholders to share and discuss the latest evidence about young adults’ housing in Britain and debate how to create a housing system that works for current and future generations of young people.


The event was held at Places for People, London, on the afternoon of September 12th. Speakers from universities and third sector organisations have shared their recent findings, followed by roundtable discussions. After concluding remarks by Rory Coulter, Sian Berry talked about her role chairing the London Assembly’s Housing Committee and her experience of housing issues in her work for Camden council.
