Yet for 250,000 people in the UK who are currently homeless, maintaining the health of their mouth can be an incredibly difficult task.

Day-to-day, hour-by-hour, many homeless people face problems with their oral health and hygiene. Without a basic oral health routine, problems such as tooth decay and gum disease can quickly become major issues.

Alongside poor nutrition and the inability to access effective dental care, even the smallest problem can quickly escalate leading to prolonged pain and suffering. Poor oral health has also been linked to diabetes, heart disease and strokes. Without proper oral health intervention, homeless people in the UK could have a significantly lower quality of life.

To try and make a positive difference to the oral health of homeless people, our team at the Oral Health Foundation is raising money by taking part in the Summer Wolf Run 2019.

Working in co-ordination with Crisis, a national charity for single homeless people, we will make sure that your donations will give people the best opportunity possible to care for their oral health.

All money raised will go towards providing dental packs so that hundreds of homeless people have some of the basic tools and resources they are currently without.

The event takes place on Saturday 1 June 2019 at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire. Please donate what you can to our cause, it is greatly appreciated!
