Recent years have witnessed increasing interest in policy issues relating to young people, yet have seen scant attention paid to the issue of their housing needs. Focusing on housing and social policy issues in contemporary Britain, this collection examines a range of government policy initiatives and offers a bold critique of policy assumptions about "appropriate" housing for young people. Using the latest empirical research, well-known figures in the field of housing studies discuss topics such as young people leaving health care, youth homelessness, students in the private rented sector, young owner occupiers, housing benefits for the under-25 age range, young single parent families, housing in rural areas, and social housing for young people. Contributors: Isobel Anderson, Nina Biehal, Roger Burrows, Bob Coles, Janet Ford, Anwen Jones, Nicholas Pleace, Deborah Quilgars, David Rhodes, Jenny Seavers, Suzanne Speak, and Jim Wade.
