Get involved in our projects
IPPR research projects often involve public participation by individuals or particular groups.
From time to time, we seek volunteers to participate in workshops or focus groups, or to fill in surveys or questionnaires. At other times, we will invite individuals and organisations to participate in learning exchange trips or other shared research activities.
All opportunities to participate in the work of IPPR are advertised on this page.
Housing supply: young people and across generations
Is the availability and affordability of housing affecting your life?
Would you and members of your family like the opportunity to discuss how access to housing has affected you and compare it to the experiences of your family?
If you are aged between 20 and 30 we would like to talk to you and other members of your family about your expectations and experiences of housing.
We will be arranging interviews for August. We can interview families together or separately. Each interviewee will be given £30 for taking part.
This would be part of a timely and important IPPR project on housing. It will explore the impact of a serious housing shortage in the UK, the lack of affordable housing and other barriers to securing a place to call home. The project will establish how the restricted housing supply is affecting the aspirations, choices and behaviour of Britain’s young people. It will also explore how similar or different expectations about housing are across and within generations.
