Activities

 Recycling:

  • The Hub is our central recycling home for the collection and recycling of donations or unused medical hygiene care supplies.
  • Drop Zones: A designated area for people to donate medical hygiene care supplies which will be collected and taken to the Hub for recycling

We also provide a pick up service to collect donations within a 15 mile radius of the Hemel Hempstead Hub.

Support families 

  • Support for families whose loved ones have passed away to clear items of equipment and care provisions.

Support  for you

  • The Pad Project UK offers support and guidance for people living with incontinence, we do this by informing people of The Bladder and Bowel service and by offering support and information through blogs which are written by Dr Chris Chatterton who is our expert by experience.
