The Housing and Life Experiences Project is part of a new research and development programme on housing and poverty funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The project is exploring how housing circumstances and life events impact on the risk and experience of poverty.
This project has three main aims:
The project is using a qualitative longitudinal study to explore the issues. We will be talking to more than 70 people of all ages in different housing circumstances in different parts of the UK about how their homes impact on other aspects of their lives, for example:
In addition there will be a policy development process involving key policy stakeholders from across the UK. This aims to identify housing (or directly housing-related) policy and practice actions that can improve individual and household outcomes. Actions that by preventing, mitigating and reducing poverty at different stages in the life course will lead to better outcomes for the people concerned.
