Trashed phone box turned into 24/7 support hub

Words by Smiley Team

We Care Food Bank in Deptford, London, has bought a trashed phone box – for just £1 – a space that has been anything but welcoming to those getting on and off the train at Deptford.

It's called #UnderTheRainbow. With it, the charity has created the world's first 24/7 community hub, with a book swap library, a free stuff shelf, free tea and coffee, and listings and directions on how to access everything locally from whom to call if you're fleeing domestic violence, if you're lonely or have mental health issues, or who to call if you're homeless how to get help now.
