Ending period poverty
Period poverty is real. Our Girls in Scotland 2018 survey revealed 13% of girls aged 13-25 knew another girl their age who has experienced 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, 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 on 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, adding our voice to some other amazing organisations already doing great work in this area.
