Ruth’s career to date has centred around roles championing social justice, opportunity and equality. Prior to her role as CEO of The Hygiene Bank, Ruth was Managing Director of the Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation, leading this charity committed to ensuring the transformative power of the arts could reach children across the UK. Ruth's career is built on her track record as a teacher and community charity leader in one of the most deprived areas of London, and time working in Parliament. This community-based mindset helps ensure that The Hygiene Bank thrives as a truly grassroots-focused charity and social movement. Championing The Hygiene Bank’s belief that everyone deserves to feel clean, Ruth is determined that communities, brands and organisations must work together to tackle and ultimately end hygiene poverty.
