Report that explores the social impacts of the undersupply of housing on young people. Through quantitative and qualitative research, it was found that, although it is still a strong aspiration - with 88 per cent of young people aged 18-30 wanting to own their own home in 10 years' time - homeownership is thought to be unattainable for a majority. Fifty-one per cent of those currently renting thought that they would not be able to own in the next 10 years.
