The inability to afford everyday hygiene and personal grooming essentials is sadly a growing problem.
With people and families hit hard by the ongoing pandemic, hygiene poverty is a bigger problem than ever before - many are struggling to afford essential products like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, period products, and hand sanitiser.
Here in Wandsworth, a new hygiene bank has opened to tackle this growing problem and alleviate the issue of hygiene poverty in our local area. As a volunteer-run project, all the money raised by the hygiene bank goes directly towards providing much-needed essentials for local residents, with all donated products distributed to local frontline organisations in the borough.
