Southend Care
Bank's Mission

Who We Are

Southend Care Bank is a community-driven movement on a mission to break the cycle of hygiene poverty in Southend-on-Sea. We provide essential toiletries and support for families and individuals facing unseen struggles. 

Our approach is rooted in radical empathy and solidarity. We make generous assumptions about people and offer a dignified experience. Together, we’re reshaping lives and fostering a stronger, more united Southend-on-Sea.

We're Here For Everyone

You can locate us at two convenient Southend locations.

  • St Mark’s Centre, first Tuesday of the month, 09:30 – 11:30
  • Westcliff Library, third Thursday of the month, 9:30-10:30

These regular intervals provide you with multiple opportunities to drop-in and use our service, engage with our mission, or support those facing hygiene poverty in our community.

We’re dedicated to making access to essential items easier for everyone, and these accessible locations are a part of our commitment to ensuring that no one must compromise on their well-being.
