WHO WE ARE
How it all began?
One Voice was established in 2012 after our founder Josh Wilkins spent 6 months on the streets of Melbourne (by choice), to see what people experiencing homelessness went through on a daily basis, he identified 2 concerns;
- The obvious, the need for safe secure accomodation and
- The hidden, access to a hot shower
Our Mobile Shower Journey
In 2014 | One Voice launched their first Mobile Shower Trailer (a pilot in the Melbourne CBD) with great success the following journey transpired.
In 2015 | with the help of ALDI Australia and Ventura Bus Lines One Voice built the worlds first, fully self contained Mobile Shower Bus, with on-board water tanks and instant hot water.
In 2016 | we replicated this model in NSW with the help of FACS and NSW Transport.
In 2017 | we built another World First Mobile Shower and Laundry Van, today this operates as our pilot vehicle that we take around to identify a need (minus the laundry services).
In 2018 | we built our first Mobile Shower Truck, with the same on-board solutions as the bus but the difference was, anyone with a car licence can drive the vehicle.
Today (2021) | we have several services in the main capital cities of Australia that have helped restore dignity to over 250,000 people who experience homelessness.
In December 2019, One Voice acquired a property in the Macedon Ranges VIC and we began our next initiative ‘Elevate’ – a place where young people can achieve their dreams through a variety of initiatives. We will continue to develop this property and expand further into more social enterprise projects that will provide training and support with the following projects:
