A world built for people who menstruate, so that everybody benefits.
We fight for menstrual equity and the rights of all
women and people who bleed,
so that no one is held back by their period or society's
warped perception of the menstruating body.
We believe that:
Everybody should be able to care for their period in a way that works for them, and have the products, information and support they need (aka - everybody deserves a bloody good period)
We shouldn’t have to exist. This need should be factored into our society, including government provision, especially for the most vulnerable
The UK has a legal and moral obligation to provide safe, welcoming, humane asylum to people fleeing violence and persecution. The fact that this welcome is instead a deliberately and increasingly hostile environment means that we our work focuses on refugees and asylum seekers as a priority
Facilitating the personal choices and comfort of the people we work with is paramount. We empower and educate people on the options available to them, but ultimately prioritise their choice
It is critical that we aim to be sustainable in what we do, offering reusable products where possible and appropriate for the people we work with, whilst never burdening the people most affected but least responsible for climate change
We have the most impact when we work collaboratively and creatively as part of a network of organisations and individuals with shared goals and values
Disruption and challenge to the status quo is essential to achieving our vision
We are at our best when we are intersectional, inclusive, diverse, anti-racist and decolonial, with self-care embedded in all that we do.

Bloody Good Employers Programme Manager
Gabby started Bloody Good Period in 2016, when she found out that very few food banks and asylum seeker drop-in centres were providing period products—despite an obvious, desperate need. She successfully developed BGP from a Facebook whip-round for products to a growing, trailblazing charity.
After nearly six years of running BGP, Gabby stepped down in May 2022, handing over to her previous deputy, Rachel Grocott.
