The Housing Agency’s Research Summer series will highlight new and interesting research in the area of housing in Ireland and will showcase research conducted or supported by the Housing Agency. The Summer Series will bring together housing practitioners, academics and public servants to discuss housing research.

The second of two lunchtime webinars will take place on 2nd July 2024 at 12pm.

Session 2: Housing Children and Young People in Ireland

This second session of the Research Summer Series is on the topic of housing children and young people in Ireland. The webinar will feature insights from Helen Russell, Head of the Social Research Division at the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), and Sara Lannin, Research and Policy Officer at the Peter McVerry Trust (PMV).

Helen Russell will discuss Housing, Health and Happiness: How Inadequate Housing Shapes Child and Parental Wellbeing. Her presentation will look at how the length of time households experience inadequate housing can shape families’ wellbeing, using data from the Growing Up in Ireland Cohort 2008.

Sara Lannin will discuss the evaluation of CAS (Capital Assistance Scheme) for Care Leavers provided by the PMV trust. Her presentation will investigate the effectiveness of the CAS for Care Leavers model in homelessness prevention, and in achieving positive outcomes across key life domains of young people, including health, education, employment, housing stability and social inclusion.

The webinar will be of particular interest to researchers, housing practitioners and policymakers.
