What we do

At The Hygiene Bank Ireland, we believe basic hygiene should be a right, not a privilege, and yet many are struggling to afford the basics. Our volunteers collect and distribute products to those in need in their local communities via our community partners – a mix of charities, schools, and local authorities. We believe in building stronger, resilient communities by working together to shape a more just society.

Understanding Hygiene Poverty

Hygiene Poverty is the inability to afford many of the everyday essential hygiene items that most of us take for granted. It is one family sharing a toothbrush, it is parents reusing dirty nappies, it is being unable to wash clothes, sports kits and uniforms as often as is necessary.
