SIGN UP BELOW TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT HOW TO RECEIVE FREE PERIOD PRODUCTS IN YOUR SCHOOL/COLLEGE
After two and a half years of providing free period products to schools across the country, and following a legal campaign launched with Free Periods, we are delighted to say that the Government has at last taken action to tackle the issue of period poverty experienced by children in England.
The Department for Education has committed to funding the supply of free period products to all schools (primary and secondary) and colleges from early next year, distributed via the phs Group. Detailed guidance on the scheme for schools is expected in early December, with full roll-out in January 2020.
Being an ‘opt-in’ programme, we believe it is critical that all of England’s schools and colleges understand the scheme and are supported through the process, so they can make the most of this opportunity.
We know from our work providing free period products to thousands of educational settings that freely available period supplies have the potential to make a huge difference to young people’s lives: improving attendance and enabling greater participation at school.
This is your chance to support all of your students to engage fully in their education, unencumbered by the normal biological process of menstruation.
