Report Launch: The role of Family in Social Mobility

It has long been understood that family matters; the experiences and resources within families have significant impact on younger generations, in particular their transition from education into employment. We now have evidence showing how family matters. This research led by Newcastle University as part of the European research project CUPESSE evidences the impact of family resources, how they are transferred to young people and what can be done if there is too little or even too much capital.

This report:

  • Examines how the resources (economic, social and cultural capital) available in the family affect the economic situation and prospects of the young person
  • Discusses the effects of this on social mobility both for those who have the family as a resource, and those who have not.
  • Presents recommendations aimed at stakeholders from government, careers service providers to youth organisations on how we can support and compensate for a lack of resources.

At the launch we will share key findings from the report, presented by lead researcher Dr Emily Rainsford and we will be exploring practical recommendations for government and policy makers, education providers, youth organisations and employers.
