Recent economic, social and political change has resulted in a lot of uncertainty regarding the housing options for young people in the UK. This report aims to inform the development of housing policy and practice by identifying the key challenges likely to face young people who will be aged 18–30 in 2020. The report explores: • the key drivers shaping the housing experiences of young people; • the impacts of key drivers of change on young people’s housing pathways; • the challenges young people will face in the housing market in 2020; and • policy responses to the housing challenges likely to face young people in 2020.
