When people use the foodbank we know that as well as not being able to afford food there will be other essential items that they are living without. We are very grateful to the hygiene bank, without whom, we would not be able to provide these toiletries at the volume that we are currently able to.

We partner with charities, community groups, social enterprise and Local Government Authority services to ensure your donations reach the people that really need them. We map local Hygiene Banks with local organisations so everything donated locally, is given out locally and stays in the community. If you are an organisation that would like to receive donations from The Hygiene Bank, click below to see you are eligible and then please contact us. If you are an individual needing help, we will try and signpost you to a partner organisation that can support you.
Thanks to The Hygiene Bank we have provided many families with an essentials pack, which included: shampoo, body wash, antiperspirant, toilet paper, baby wipes, nappies and laundry detergent. When money is particularly short, this was a life-line.
