In January 2020, the UK Government rolled out a scheme to all schools and colleges in England making period products free to all students to access. The scheme is being delivered by phs Group on behalf of the Department for Education. Schools and colleges have to sign up, and then place orders, to receive period products.

In September 2020, we found out that less than 40% of schools had signed up to the scheme and placed orders for period products. This isn’t good enough. We will continue to fight to ensure that every young person has period products whilst they are in compulsory education.
