Family Homelessness examines the structural causes of homelessness in twentieth-century Britain. It considers such important contexts as the erosion of the social housing stock due to the Right to Buy program and ever-changing personal vulnerabilities such as domestic violence, single-parenthood and mental health problems—and concludes that homelessness is most often the result of a toxic combination of personal and structural factors. J. M. Grimshaw presents an overview of research on the impact of homelessness on children, examines government policy responses, and appends an annotated research bibliography for further study. The volume also provides information on homelessness legislation in England, the development of social housing policy since the end of World War II, and the mortgage repossessions crisis of the early 1990s, making this a useful reference resource for students, researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the field.
