Information

Shower Access Service - Nillumbik 

This service provides free access to showers for people in our communities who are homeless, couch surfing, or who don’t have a permanent place to live. Having regular access to showers is important for a person’s health, hygiene and dignity, and can also significantly improve feelings of self-confidence and self-worth. 

How does the service work?

People who want to use the Shower Access Service can collect a Shower Access Pass from healthAbility at 917 Main Rd Eltham, between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.

They can then access free showers at two locations:
