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. The Hygiene Bank is a grassroots, people powered charity, that directly helps those experiencing hygiene poverty. Our network of banks exist to ensure those living in poverty have access to the basics. Products are donated, collected, sorted and distributed to a network of partner organisations and services that support vulnerable and struggling people. Supporting The Hygiene Bank is a simple way to support not just one organisation, but hundreds of grassroots charities across the UK and Ireland tackling a wide range of issues, from poverty to domestic abuse and disability.
