Ending period poverty
We believe in making free period products easily available to everyone who needs them. Period products aren’t a luxury – they’re an essential product and no one should miss out on opportunities, or face isolation or embarrassment simply because they can’t afford them.
In our research 89% agreed free period products would help make sure girls and young women don’t miss out in school or college and that free period products would help to reduce stigma around periods.
We’re proud to be part of the campaign to end period poverty in Scotland and to end the stigma around periods, adding our voice to those of other amazing organisations doing great work in this area.
2020 was a real milestone for the campaign as the Free Period Products Bill became law, placing a legal duty on local authorities to ensure that period products are available for free to anyone who needs them.
