Starting a Comfort Bag Scheme for your local hospital

Girlguiding Greater Manchester West have set up a heart-warming initiative to provide Comfort Bags to patients who find themselves in hospital unexpectedly.

Over the past year, the County has donated small toiletries and care items to go inside handmade bags and have delivered these to people who find themselves in hospital with no belongings.

Girlguiding North West England is now developing this scheme to support different hospitals across the North West Region.
