theBUSproject is to create BASIC URBAN SHELTER to provide warm and safe beds for those facing the streets.

Stevenage Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We are looking to purchase and convert an old bus to provide 12-16 sleep pods with wash facilities and a daily hot meal.

What we'll deliver:

  • buy a bus
  • Convert and fully fit out the bus
  • funds will also allow for operational costs for a minimum of 12 weeks
  • purchase essential items eg bedding and personal hygiene items

Why it's a great idea:

Offering low cost safe shelter, lightening the burden on Local hostels and Councils, removing street sleepers from local business doorways and providing assistance and support to give our homeless guests the hope of a future. Helping the homeless is always a great idea. Making the most out of an old bus in the process is even better.

Steps to get it done:
