A young people’s charter on housing

Young people's housing experiences, choices and aspirations.

The shortage of affordable housing means that young people face major constraints in their housing choices. This puts increasing pressure on them to get their first move into the housing market right or risk losing out altogether. With many young people still aspiring to own a home, what are their experiences of moving through the housing system? What changes would they like to see? This Round-up:

  • summarises evidence from four projects led by young people aged under 30 across the UK examining their peers' experiences, housing choices and hopes for the future;
  • sets out the changes young people feel would help them make the right housing choices.

We have commissioned a series of short animated films illustrating the challenges and dilemmas young people face when seeking their own housing.
