    • About

      We are a national, grassroots charity grounded in community. Our passion stems from a sense of injustice: it's not right that anyone should face hygiene poverty. Galvanised by the belief that everyone deserves to feel clean, we give hygiene, beauty & personal care essentials to people in need.

      Many people in poverty or those who find themselves in times of crisis often have to make the distressing decision to eat or stay clean because they can't afford to do both. Hygiene poverty is shaming, humiliating and excluding and can result in social isolation. It leads to a crippling lack of confidence and negatively affects good health and mental well-being which can impact early childhood development, learning, employability and social interaction. Ultimately this is about dignity, self confidence and mental wellbeing.

      Each Hygiene Bank encourages people and businesses in the locality to collect essential toiletries, hygiene, beauty and grooming products and donate them via drop off points. Brands and retailers also give us unused or repackaged products. All these products are collected, sorted and given out to a network of organisations and services that support vulnerable and struggling people. We partner with local schools and existing charities such as foodbanks, supported housing schemes, refuges, hostels and social services who then distribute the products to the people they are working with. This means everything donated locally stays in the area and is given out to local families and individuals living in crisis.
