Toiletries Needed!

When it comes to donating your toiletries we wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get involved, so we 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.

Directory

Toiletries aren’t a luxury item they are a necessary item, not being able to feel clean affects a person’s mental health, their general wellbeing. Being able to give families a bag of toiletries that can last a week or a month makes a huge difference to them financially as well as emotionally. The ‘spare’ money is often put towards bills or food shopping. We as a charity rely on donations of toiletries to support the work we do; we are so grateful to Toiletries Amnesty.

The Baby Bank

As a charity we would never be able to buy products of this quality for our patients and carers. As our patients are all approaching the end of their lives, we do all we can to improve the quality of their lives, receiving such amazingly generous donations helps us to do this. We can’t thank you enough.

 

The Prince of Wales Hospice

Toiletries Amnesty has helped families who attend our food larder to access toiletry products. We have been able to help provide cosmetics to Women’s Aid to help give women dignity and improve self-esteem. We are also helping young people in care and young carers by giving them access to these products.

Ladies of the Rock

Refugees need toiletries just like the rest of us, but these are often expensive items and for refugees with barely any funds it can be impossible for them to afford these items. When we hand out toiletries at our aid distributions they are always very gratefully received.

Goodwill Caravan

I love the ease of signing up to this organisation and knowing that interested parties can contact us to organise donation and delivery. It really helps when you are all unpaid volunteers having this kind of support for our single parent families. Thank you!

SPIN (Single Parent Information Network)

Within a week of signing up we were contacted by someone! The items we receive have been invaluable for families in need over the COVID pandemic.

Community Interest Luton

Toiletries Amnesty has made a huge difference in the volume of donations we receive as an organisation, it has been one of the main reasons we were able to continue in the midst of a pandemic.

The 'Freshen Up' Initiative

We were overjoyed to receive a huge donation of baby toiletries, just wonderful!  Not only can we help everyone in refuge and the community, but we now have a good stock for future families and emergencies.

 

Black Country Womens Aid

Working together as a community is the most effective way to build a strong community and Toiletries Amnesty plays a big role in making people feel valued, helping people to rebuild or start their lives within their own identity.

Sinead Loftus, Artist and Toiletries Amnesty Supporter

When I arrived at YMCA Wirral I had very few possessions. In my room waiting for me was a welcome pack filled with lots of different toiletries and a few treats. For the first time in ages, I was able to have a hot shower, wash my hair and feel clean and smell good.

To think that someone, who doesn’t know me, was kind enough to think of me in my desperate situation was like receiving a warm hug.

Having discovered Toiletry Amnesty, I knew I found the ideal place to donate – with connections to charities all over the UK, I was glad that my products would go to helping as much people as possible, all around the country.

We cannot thank you enough for this donation which will help us provide even more for our patients and their families when they are feeling low and need a pick me up, helping us make a difference especially at this difficult time for us all.

Jill Kirkham, The Prince of Wales Hospice

X Foundation chose the Toiletries Amnesty for its identification and innovative reversal of what is a common household issue into a positive result for those in need. The initiative has the means to be a global vehicle for good and for the care of others less fortunate […] It is accessible, honourable and holds the potential for rapid growth to achieve good.

X Foundation

If it were not for the kindness of people like yourself and the support you give the women and children would not have those nice little bits to cheer them up at a difficult time. Many of our families arrive with nothing having in many cases left everything behind, so it is so good to be able to give them something nice. Thank you all once again.

Christine, Refuge
