The Couch Project

The Couch Project was launched in 2012 by The Salvation Army’s Oasis Youth Support Network to raise awareness of couch surfing, a hidden form of homelessness, and to encourage individuals, schools and community groups to raise money for services supporting these young people.

There are more than 44,000 young people under the age of 25 who are experiencing homelessness and we want to do more to help them. But we need your support. That’s why we’re asking you to spend a night on your couch and raise money for The Couch Project.

Together we can give food, blankets, counselling and support to kids who are experiencing homelessness to get them out of danger and back on their feet.

The official date of The Couch Project sleepover is Friday 16 September 2016. But you can host your event and collect donations anytime between July and October.

How do I get involved?

First, set up your personalised fundraising page then plan and promote your sleepover! Will you sleep at home with a mate or at school with everyone? You can sign up your school here.
