Research topic: British Youth Unseen: Sofa-Surfing and Space
My research seeks to understand how sofa-surfing, other temporary living arrangements and the support available for young people affects their motivation to achieve fruitful and prosperous lives. To complete these aims, I’m using an innovative methodology that combines descriptive statistics with interviews, person-centred photography and the ‘Future Authoring programme’.
