This paper presents evidence emerging from a research programme on the relationship between housing and poverty. It explores the role of housing in the lives of people experiencing poverty, and practical ways to ease the housing crisis for people in or at risk of poverty. Relatively little evidence has been available up to now on how housing affects experience of poverty or of how housing can act as a potential route into or out of poverty.
