Our Wishlist

Personal Care Items

Donations of toiletries are utilised by all women who stay at Catherine House. When a woman arrives at our crisis accommodation service, they often have very few possessions. Each woman will receive a welcome pack including a handbag, toiletries and new sleepwear and underwear. Toiletries are also used throughout our three communal accommodation sites and Women’s Centre bathroom facilities.

As women move in to their own homes, we continue to support them through monthly toiletry orders through our Outreach Service. This assists women financially as it is one less expense for them as they are trying to get back on their feet.

If you would like to support our women as they transition in to their new home, here are some suggestions of new items that are always gratefully received and can be accepted.

PLEASE NOTE: All personal care items must new, unused and be of standard size (no hotel/travel/minis), due to the fact that clients stay at Catherine House for a long period of time.
