Real London Lives
- 01 September 2016
Real London Lives was a longitudinal study examining the lives of London housing association tenants, which ran from 2013 to 2015. A co-production between the G15 and the University of York’s Centre for Housing Policy, it covered three facets of tenant’s lives:
- • the impact of family dynamics on housing decisions, particularly in response to welfare reform (click here for the qualitative report)
- experiences of employment and unemployment (click here for the qualitative report and here for a summary of survey findings)
- household economics including tenants’ income, expenditure, debt and attitudes to money (click here for the qualitative report and here for a quantitative report on survey findings)
A final six-page summary report is also available here.
Dr Julie Rugg, who led the research on behalf of York’s Centre for Housing Policy, said:
