We’re working together to create period equity

 

phs, in partnership with Blaenau Gwent county council are working together to tackle period poverty across Wales. As part of a drive to tackle this issue, the Welsh Government awarded a grant to enable the Blaenau Gwent council to provide free sanitary products to all schools within the borough, dispensed via phs’ coin-free vending machine.

More than 30 coin-free vending machines have now been installed by phs within every secondary school in Blaenau Gwent, dispensing free sanitary products to pupils. In addition, sanitary products have also been provided to primary schools and will be dispensed by teaching staff.

phs as been engaging with schools, colleges and universities to develop a solution to period poverty which best suits the needs of young people. We have created a new free-vend sanitary machine which can be positioned within washrooms, offering free sanitary products at any time. They are discreet, hygienic and convenient, saving young girls the potential embarrassment of having to go and ask for products which they may not be inclined to do.

 

To promote this provision to young people in the community as well as educate schools and parents about the initiative, we have created posters, which can be downloaded here:
