Sofa Surfer is the story of a young woman from Hackney, JRC, who spent years staying on friends’ and relatives’ sofas and, once again, has nowhere to go.

No-one knows how many young people in London are sofa surfing – living on sofas in the homes of friends or relatives with nowhere else to go. Almost everyone knows someone in this situation. It’s a form of hidden homelessness. The instability can affect their health, education and their chance of getting and keeping a job.
