Who is entitled to a hygiene pack?

EACHa provide a hygiene pack to every man, woman and child who presents as homeless in East Ayrshire.

Who makes them?

Volunteers from churches throughout East Ayrshire collect toiletries which are made up into packs at a central point. The packs are distributed to people in homeless hostels, temporary accommodation and Women’s Aid. Around 600 packs are handed over every year – contents of the packs all donated by members of local churches. A true example of churches working together.Toy packs for each homeless child
