One Voice -
One of the challenges when living on the streets is personal hygiene. Some people shower at shelters and others in public toilet blocks, either way people are constantly worrying -
‘Who is around’ or ‘Am I safe’
In 2014 One Voice launched Australia’s first Mobile Shower Service in Melbourne and provided the following service
- A safe environment to shower, shave and get clean.
- Referral services to organisations that provide support and assistance.
- Distribution of free hygiene products and clothes.
pilot was so successful with an average of 18 people using the service each night that in 2015 One Voice launched a World first Mobile Shower Bus. The service is fully self contained and has on-board
water tanks, instantaneous hot water and generated electricity. Basically the bus could go into the desert and provide showers for up to 40 people.
One Voice now have a fleet of Mobile Shower Services in the following states:
ADELAIDE - BRISBANE - MELBOURNE - PERTH & SYDNEY
