Ruth Lupton et al

A look at the role of social housing for four generations of families since the Second World War.

This study describes how housing for families has changed over time and explores the relationship between social housing, family circumstances and the 'adult outcomes' for children who grew up in social housing – i.e. their experiences when they are adults.

The report and summary from this study is published by the Tenant Services Authority and supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
