Young People - Housing options & support
About the event
‘There are 6.5million young people between the ages of 16 and 25 in the UK and they all need somewhere to live’
Almost 3 million people aged 20 -34 were living with their parents in 2011, a 20% increase on the number in 1997. As well as rising prices young people are experiencing higher university costs, increasing rents and a credit squeeze which has seen many banks and building societies shy away from offering mortgages at high loan-to-value.
Early studies show around 1.5milion young people will be pushed towards living in the private rented sector in 2020. In addition an extra half a million young people will be forced to stay with their parents into their 30s taking the total number of young people living with mum and dad to 3.7milion by 2020. The lack of opportunities of homeownership for young people risk forcing young families out of the private rented sector and into homelessness.
Homelessness has a serious impact on both the young people affected and the wider society. The cost of homelessness also has a large impact on the local community, with a higher use of health services, expensive temporary accommodation and prolonged periods on welfare benefits.
The welfare reform and the announcement of the shared accommodation rate being extended to cover people under 35 has caused concern, this event will help identify the possible impacts the changes may have on young people and their lives.
This one day event will inform delegates on how to deliver accommodation and support pathways that both other young people a springboard to better things and meet local and national strategies priorities. It will also provide delegates with the opportunity to look at how your organisation can respond to the challenges ahead for young people and their housing options.
