This review has been written ahead of the forthcoming Housing Reform Green Paper, which will include a focus on the improved provision of housing services and options for young people. The review provides a context for considering the changing nature of young people's housing transitions in recent decades and highlights some of the most pressing housing-related issues facing young people in the UK today.

In particular, it explores:

  • housing pathways and the changing nature of youth transitions;
  • young people and housing tenure;
  • changing patterns of relationship and household formation;
  • young people, housing and money;
  • the housing transitions of vulnerable groups;
  • key policy issues in relation to young people and housing; and
  • future directions.
