With a new shower, toilet and sink (with disabled access) it will mean that people who are sleeping rough can come in and freshen up - a basic need that most of us take for granted. Hygiene should be considered a human right. Being able to have a shower and maintain personal hygiene will be a significant step to improving the health and well-being of people who are sleeping rough. It will also provide an opportunity for people using the wet room to benefit from information, advice and wider support.

What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great idea because people sleeping rough tell us that they don't access important local help, because they are worried about their personal hygiene. For example, 'Pete' tells us: "I've had a bad cough for a long time, but I don't want to see my GP because I don't feel clean." Having had a shower in the wet room, a person sleeping rough will feel more human, confident and socially included.
