Family support for young people setting up home

Dr Gill Jones

Families are increasingly expected to provide financial support to young people and this may be crucial to those attempting to set up an independent home.

However, research by Gill Jones at Edinburgh University's Centre for Educational Sociology suggests that it may be difficult for young people to access family support.

The research was based on a national Scottish survey of 4,000 young people and follow-up case studies.
