GETTING PADS TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM.

WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHERE, HOW?

Unbelievably, tampons, pads and other must-haves are not seen as 'essentials' and often not supplied through food banks and drop-in centres, leaving many who menstruate to either make the tough decision whether to forgo food and spend what little money they have on pads, or to make-do with rags, old newspapers or toilet paper.

One of the main ways we support asylum seekers and refugees to access menstrual supplies is to donate them to drop-in centres across the UK.

However, you know. 2020 and that means that we have had to seriously rethink the way we work. While we can't wait to get back to working with our volunteers IRL, we are currently operating a Take What You Need scheme from our Ally Pally storage unit, as well as bulk-buying and delivering products all over the country.

 

More information on our Pandemic Plan here.

 

Please don't send us physical donations at the moment, because whilst we love pads, we don't have the volunteers or the capacity to process them.

If you'd like to support us in getting supplies to those who need them, the best thing you can do (if you're able to, obvs) is to donate.

We'll post updates about volunteering, fundraising and everything else you can do to help support us via our community newsletter. 

Everything you donate helps us to help people who can't afford or access menstrual protection, and every single donation makes a huge difference.
