Working with Boots UK we have co-developed lesson plans for KS2 and KS3 to help young people learn about hygiene poverty and the way it effects one 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. Link in bio.
