This project will develop a longitudinal research strategy that could be used to conduct a multi-city study to understand the relationship between the receipt of affordable housing through the Affordable Housing Programme (AHP) or social housing and the wellbeing of children. The project will examine outcomes (such as employment, educational attainment, well-being of children, etc.) associated with having secure, affordable housing.
The project will use the developed longitudinal research strategy to conduct a small-scale pilot study that will provide preliminary data on how the receipt of affordable housing impacts the well-being of children.
