What we do

At The Hygiene Bank we believe basic hygiene is not a privilege. Our volunteers go around their local communities collecting and distributing products to those in need via our community partners – a mix of charities, schools, and local authorities. We believe in building stronger, resilient communities by working together to shape a more just society.

Boots + The Hygiene Bank

Through National Hygiene Week our partner  Boots UK will be supporting The Hygiene Bank in stores across the UK. Boots will continue to donate four full sized products with the Boots logo on for every 1kg of any product donated to The Hygiene Bank in a Boots store.

**Between 1 June to 30 June, Boots will double these donations, meaning Boots will donate eight full sized products with the Boots logo on for every 1kg of any product donated to The Hygiene Bank in a Boots store. Available in participating Boots stores.**

So much more to come so please keep an eye on social media for more exciting updates.

The early years of a child’s life are crucially important to their health and success later on. That’s why we support young people across the country by providing them and their families with basic hygiene essentials. We feel it’s key not only to provide hygiene products but also to incorporate learning about hygiene poverty in the classroom and in the community to build awareness, empathy and inspire action.

Educational Resources

Working with Boots UK we have co-developed lesson and activity plans for KS2 and KS3 to help young people learn about hygiene poverty and the way it effects one’s physical and emotional well-being. Our schools resources can be downloaded for free and can be used in schools, Girl Guiding or Scouts groups, or to help you talk to your children about hygiene poverty at home.

Student Art Competition

We are asking students to draw ‘what does feeling clean mean to me?’ Winners will be announced during NHW. Of course, if you’d like to host your own competition you can download our toolkit.

Write your MP

No matter your age, it’s important politicians know hygiene poverty exists in their local community. Help those who aren’t able to afford a toothbrush or have to come to school in an unwashed uniform. Write to your local MP and let them know hygiene poverty isn’t right.

You can do this by downloading our template letter for youth and adapting it for your local MP. It only takes a few minutes to ask your MP to ‘Look Up’ and ensure everyone has access can afford to keep clean.
