Period Poverty is where families cannot afford to buy sanitary products. The subject of period poverty has been in the news recently with supermarkets in NZ cutting the cost of tampons and pads, and students in Scotland receiving free sanitary products. Lack of access to sanitary products can have a far-reaching effect on young people’s lives. No students should ever have to stay home from school and jeopardise their education because of natural biological changes to their bodies.
We've compiled a list of links below where schools can access sanitary products for student's in need.
