Dignity Boxes

Logo for Dignity Boxes

Scottish charity Dignity Boxes places toiletries in areas of Edinburgh and West Lothian, Scotland, that are experiencing deprivation or poverty.

‘Dignity boxes’ are small boxes filled with basic, donated, toiletries that are placed openly in areas they’re most needed. By providing toiletries to people who cannot otherwise afford to use them, Dignity Boxes helps to alleviate hygiene poverty and ensure self-worth and dignity for those struggling with poverty, deprivation or homelessness.
