Beauty Banks

Beauty Banks provide personal care and toiletries to those experiencing hygiene poverty.

Beauty Banks distribute unused toiletries to registered charitable organisations throughout Britain which then pass them on to those in need, thus alleviating hygiene poverty and improving the self-worth and mental health of those experiencing poverty and deprivation.
