Plan Brussels drinking fountains and free public toilets, 2019 edition is available!

june 2019
Helping homeless people find their way easily to free public toilets or a drinking water fountain in Brussels is the aim of this plan "Drinking water fountains and free toilets", which Street Nurses npo is publishing for the ninth time this year.

With this map, it is possible for homeless people to locate and access these accessible facilities that allow them to take care of their hygiene and health, despite their difficult living conditions.

From 18 June, the plan will be displayed in around 50 metro stations in Brussels, thanks to a generous partnership with STIB.

A copy of the plan "Drinking water fountains and free toilets" can be obtained via info@idr-sv.org. The plan is free, but a donation to the organization is always welcome at BE91 0014 6955 7676.


This summer, the plan for free drinking water fountains and public toilets will also be distributed, through the network of street workers and medico-social support organisations, to the homeless population in Brussels.

But other residents, visitors or users of the city can also benefit from it. Because who has not yet felt the urgent need to quench a thirst or respond to an urgent need while walking in the city? Thus, Street Nurses also raises awareness of the difficult situation that homeless people face to survive in the city.

The plan has been completely revised and updated compared to the previous edition (2016), thanks to the efforts of the Street Nurses volunteers who inspected and photographed all the fountains and toilets, but also thanks to the collaboration with the non-profit association Zero Waste Belgium and the competent services of the various Brussels municipalities.

The plan covers the entire Brussels-Capital Region, with facilities inside and outside the Pentagon. Compared to the previous edition, a number of installations have disappeared, but new ones have been added. Remarkably, with regard to toilets, the majority of the new facilities are accessible to women (3 additional women's toilets in the pentagon and 6 additional women's toilets outside the pentagon).
