NATIONAL HYGIENE WEEK

3rd to 9th OCTOBER 2022

EVERYONE DESERVES TO FEEL CLEAN

Do you believe that Everyone Deserves to Feel Clean? Do you believe that it’s simply not right that many of us in the UK can’t afford basics like soap, toothpaste and laundry detergent? So do we.

This National Hygiene Week 2022, we will explore the realities of hygiene poverty. From how it reduces our self-worth and stops us from going to job interviews, to how hard it is to ask friends and family for help.

Despite this, there is always something you can do, which is why we are inviting you to join our movement and be part of the solution.

National Hygiene Week is an opportunity to raise awareness about hygiene poverty by bringing together thought leaders, community partners, grassroots organisers, schools, charities, and volunteers to contribute to the public conversation and increase demand for action so that collectively we are a voice for change.

Please consider making a donation today to support our work in over 160 communities across the UK.
