The Hidden Homeless

posted by: Administrator

Sofa Surfer Trailer from Gaelle Tavernier on Vimeo.

Off Centre is launching a campaign to address the issue of hidden homelessness.

What is hidden homelessness?

  • 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.
  • It's a form of hidden homelessness - someone you know may well be sofa surfing - but you wouldn't necessarily think of them as homeless.  
  • The instability can affect their health, education and their chance of getting and keeping a job.

Sofa Surfer launches on Wednesday 21 December 2011 at BOXPARK, Shoreditch.  If you'd like to be part of the campaign, or if you'd like to register for the event, sign up at www.sofasurferfilm.com/
