From September 2018 all schools in Aberdeen will be providing access to free sanitary products. A range of sanitary towels will be freely available to all pupils who need them from the Primary 6 and 7 class teachers. Pupils will be allowed to take as many products as they need and are encouraged to take enough products to last over weekends and holidays.
Making sanitary products easily accessible for all pupils who need them will support hygiene needs and positively impact health and wellbeing.
Running alongside this project, FareShare will be providing access to free sanitary products to low income families. Low income families can access free sanitary products at community venues throughout the City. For a list of venues follow the link https://www.cfine.org/sanitary-products.
