No place to call home: The social impacts of housing undersupply on young people
We are not building enough homes in this country, with much debated negative implications for the economy. However this new IPPR research highlights the real and substantial social impacts of housing undersupply. In particular, it demonstrates how the lack of quality, affordable housing is harming the everyday experiences of the current generation of young people – and their ability to fulfil their aspirations.
Committee Room 19, Palace of Westminster, Houses of Parliament , London
10 December 2012, 17:30 (for 17.45 start) – 18:45
This event will launch a new IPPR research report on the social impact of housing undersupply on young people, with contributions and responses from:
- Jack Dromey MP, Shadow Housing Minister
- Leslie Morphy, Chief Executive, Crisis
- Graeme Cooke, Research Director, IPPR
- Yvonne Roberts (chair) Journalist, Observer
The research is based on an extensive review of the literature plus original quantitative analysis, interviews with young people and polling of a representative sample of 18-30 year olds – providing a new perspective on the housing pressures facing individuals and society
This event will provide an opportunity to hear the results of this major new IPPR study and debate the issues with a panel of high profile experts including Jack Dromey MP, shadow housing minister and Leslie Morphy, chief executive of Crisis. The session will be chaired by Observer journalist Yvonne Roberts.
We would be delighted if you could join us. Places are limited but if you are not able to attend the invitation is transferrable to a colleague.
