Sofa Surfer is a short film, produced by The Right Track, telling 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.

The film is the centrepiece of a campaign that aims to gain an understanding of the extent of sofa surfing in London among young people and to push for a change.

Many young people in London spend their nights on sofas belonging to friends, relatives or strangers; sometimes putting themselves at risk by doing so. 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.
