Toiletries Amnesty works across the UK and abroad to alleviate hygiene poverty.
It in September 2014. When Karen Harvey realised that too many people were living with too many spare, unwanted or unused toiletries, (including baby products), she realised that actually, these items could be really helpful to others.
The original premise was to collect spare toiletries for one homeless shelter in Cambridge, the donations kept coming. Now Toiletries Amnesty support over 200 organisations.
They work with homeless shelters and hostels, women and children’s refuges, mental health services, children and families centres, food banks, refugee support groups, NHS Trust services, schools and colleges, prison services, community groups, and other organisations who need our support.
There are lots of ways you can support this great organisation, big and small. They run the organisation on a shoestring, so any fundraising support or financial donations you can give, however big or small, do make a significant impact on the work they do.
When it comes to donating your toiletries they’ve made it as easy as possible for everyone to get involved and created a directory of those who’d really appreciate a little bit of help from us all.
You can see what the organisations do, and where they are, and you can see how to get in touch with them. Please mention Toiletries Amnesty – they’ll know exactly what you mean!
