As existing homeless shelters and day centres cannot meet the demand, ShowerBox is launching to support their vital work.
There have been free and low cost public showers across Europe for decades and several mobile showering facilities have launched across America. One powerful example is Lava Mae, click here for testimonials of their impact: https://lavamae.org/ourimpact/. Closer to home, since the Ealing Soup Kitchen installed a shower in 2017, numbers have tripled in size.
To support thousands across London and eventually beyond, we need your help!
First and foremost, we are on the hunt for locations and funding avenues. Secondly, we are welcoming expertise on converting spaces into showering facilities. Thirdly, we are accepting donations, from tiles to toiletries.
All your suggestions most welcome!
We look forward to hearing from you.
