Housing and place

Theme lead: Steve Green

The UK is experiencing a housing crisis. The affordability, availability, and quality of housing presents challenges for significant numbers of people across the country and is the subject of heated public debate. At the extremes of this crisis, homelessness in all its forms remains a pernicious characteristic of our society.

CRESR’s work on Housing and Place aims to develop and build on our outstanding record of housing-based research and evaluation by furthering an understanding of the operation of housing markets, individuals’ experiences of housing precarity, and the interface between housing and other domains - including welfare, health, and social care. It aims to provide evidence and analysis to support and influence effective policy and practice that promotes social justice and fairness.

Our staff have research and evaluation expertise in a broad range of housing and place issues, using qualitative and quantitative based methodologies. Our current interests include

  • Affordable housing
  • Homelessness
  • Housing and multiple disadvantage
  • Housing and welfare
  • Community-led housing
  • Understanding housing markets and tenures
  • Housing and health
  • Housing policy and practice development
