Free menstrual products subscription
Period poverty remains a pressing concern in many communities, with individuals and families struggling to afford necessary menstrual supplies.
Amid the cost-of-living crisis, soaring inflation and rocketing energy bills mean many have been forced to prioritise other household essentials over buying products like pads and tampons.
For young people, the lack of access to products disrupts education and school attendance.
The free period subscription programme aims to address the issue of period poverty, ensuring that individuals facing financial hardships have access to essential menstrual products, and removing any barriers to accessing education.
In partnership with Grace & Green, a leading provider of eco-friendly period products, it means that residents under 25 in the county borough can directly receive products to their home or pick up at a collection point, ensuring individuals can manage their periods with dignity and confidence.
