As of this month girls and women of all ages living in Powys are able to request free period product packs to their homes.
Thanks to Welsh Government funding Powys County Council are offering a free home delivery service of eco friendly period products from social enterprise, Hey Girls. This is in addition to the period products already available in Powys schools, youth groups and food banks.
This is part of the efforts locally and nationally to tackle period poverty in communities and to promote period dignity across Wales. The council received funding from the Welsh Government to address period poverty in Powys communities.
Individuals can complete the online form up to three times before the 31st March 2022.
A reminder to school pupils that period products are available to pupils and can be accessed via the school office or designated staff member in all schools. In secondaries there is also the option of coin-free vending machines. To find out more about the period dignity support for pupils in school contact firstname.lastname@example.org
