Bricks, Mortar and Policy Perspectives for Intergenerational Living (Viewpoint 74)

Publication date: 2015

The Boomerang Generation, (younger people who return to live with parents), is bringing into sharp focus the way in which our houses are designed and how adaptable they really are to the changing needs of families today.

Whilst discussions have been going on about the need for older households to downsize, many older people are seeing their children coming back home as a result of the multiple pressures of housing and jobs markets, the cost of training or higher academic courses.

Households are spanning much bigger age ranges as younger people are returning or simply never leaving home and living with their much older parents. In many cases they may be financially supporting them.

This article looks at the policy and practice issues that are starting to arise and the infrastructure to deliver different housing options.
