This chapter examines the rise in populations at a disadvantage, vulnerable and at risk in the housing market. Despite the prosperity of many economies, the benefits of economic growth have not favoured all and increasingly low-income people find themselves marginalised within the housing market. The discussion focusses on the difficulties in defining and measuring vulnerability within the housing market; trends, particularly in terms of homelessness; and understanding how and why people become vulnerable in the housing market. The chapter concludes with indications for further research and outlines some promising approaches for addressing vulnerability so that individuals can enjoy wellbeing benefits and communities can prosper both economically and socially.
