As many of our supporters already know, The Red Box Project is in the early stages of winding down in England as it has done already in Wales and Scotland. This is due to the respective government’s commitment to providing free menstrual products within all schools and colleges across the country.
Whilst our project will remain open in those areas where we have projects and where our young people are not yet being supported by their governments in the same way, we feel that our decision to step aside for the government’s scheme to work effectively is the right one.
We would like to extend the kindness that we have been shown on multiple occasions, every single day and it may be that projects locally to you have products remaining that would help another setting within your community. If you know of a place or volunteer/work in one of these places then please email Anna and Clegg at our HQ: firstname.lastname@example.org. We would need to have a contact email and best point of contact name which we could share with our coordinators and the public who wish to continue supporting people outside of education.
Our projects will not be continuing and we want to ensure that any products we have remaining go to where they are needed.
Many of our projects are still in need of your support. As we are sure you can appreciate, we are a voluntary run community initiative which means that our volunteer coordinators fit the running of their projects around their own lives. Truly incredible people! They will be in touch with everyone who have shown such kindness in due course and if you would still like to support us, in the first instance, please email us directly at HQ so we can check the position of your local projects. We are hugely appreciative of your support which we think shines through in everything we share. Please be patient with us as we navigate our way through this time. Thank you so much ❤️.
