They are essential toiletries for the homeless, which are provided by Helensburgh churches.
The items are packed in a gym bag and then they are given to homeless people who are being placed in temporary housing in the area.
They are given out by:
- The Council Housing Dept – to homeless men and women who need them.
- The Youth Housing Support services to young people aged 16 – 24 who are either residing in temporary accommodation, under the threat of homelessness and/or who may have been recently looked after.
- Women’s Refuge to women and children being housed in a place of safety.
