Hygiene Poverty Briefing – Spring 2023

Using national polling data from our Not a Choice campaign, and insights from our charitable network, our spring briefing provides an overview on hygiene poverty in the UK in early 2023.  

Impact report 2022

We believe everyone deserves access to life’s essentials. In 2022, the cost-of-living crisis forced people to make the impossible choice to heat, eat, or keep clean. With resources stretched to the limit, this year, our work was more needed than ever.

Human Right to Hygiene

Our new report maps the systems behind hygiene poverty, and crucially, outlines a Roadmap to Change with concrete steps we can take to help end hygiene poverty. Every person deserves to feel clean. But for those forced to make the daily decision whether to heat, eat or be clean, this human right is simply beyond their reach.

More than Products

We worked with the New Economics Foundation (NEF) to better understand the value of our work, and some of the key social outcomes we deliver. In 2021, every £1 spent delivering our work unlocked at least £14.05 of social value for our charitable network.

When we released the first edition of this report last year there was a feeling that the worst was over. Little did we know that another year on, Covid-19 would still be dominating our professional and personal lives.
