Housing issues facing non-resident fathers

The roundtable event hosted by Kathryn Muir took place on 20 November 2018 at The Pitt Building in Cambridge, and was attended by academics, practitioners and policymakers.

The lively and enthusiastic discussion identified what were felt to be the key factors that prevented non-resident fathers from securing accommodation suitable for their needs, and debated the merits of existing schemes with elements that could be adapted for non-resident fathers.  The report neatly summarises the key points of the roundtable and details ideas for change, in terms of government policy, potential housing solutions and the need to promote a wider understanding of the needs of this overlooked, often marginalised group. 

Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research are interested in carrying out further research in this area. If you would be interested in collaborating on this, or if you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Muir on kam85@cam.ac.uk.
