Periods don't stop in a pandemic

Periods don't stop in a pandemic

As we continue to grapple with a world dominated by Covid, and its huge array of impacts, we are determined to make sure that no-one has to worry about their period at the same time as a global pandemic.

Our efficient, cost-effective operations model has seen us distribute over 60,000 packs of period products since March 2020. It comprises:

• Our Take What You Need scheme, running from our Alexandra Palace storage unit - where whoever needs access to period products can collect what they need

• Our bulk-buy and deliver system, getting period supplies to groups around the country, so they can get them to people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford or access them.

We've supported refugees and asylum-seekers, food banks, community response groups, shelters for the homeless, those fleeing domestic violence and frontline NHS workers. And there’s no let-up in sight. Recession is biting, more and more people are being pushed into financial hardship and the government response – including an insulting 3p per week increase in support for asylum-seekers – is inadequate to say the least. We want to make sure we can get products to anyone who needs help – so we need every bit of support you’re able to give us right now. Thank you.
