We provide menstrual, sexual and reproductive health sessions led by medical professionals to refugees and asylum seekers.
We started providing education sessions after several of our partners asked us for support in answering important menstrual, sexual and reproductive health questions from the people they work.
After discussion with our partners, the people we work and medical professionals we learned how infrequently refugees and asylum seekers visit medical appointments when they have questions or complaints about their reproductive health.
So we set up our education program in collaboration with our partners and superstar medical volunteers. They help us to deliver sessions to support menstruating asylum seekers and refugees, helping them to understand more about their bodies, sexual and reproductive health, and to care for themselves and their flow.
Looking for support, information or advice?
While we try to keep these lists up to date, funding and organisations change quickly and we cannot be responsible for the content of external links.
We work with our bloody incredible partners to tailor every session to fit the needs of those we work with. That means choosing a time, place and topic that suits each individual group - whether that’s in-person or online.
We cover six topics, which have all been chosen by the people we work with. They are:
Cervical Cancer Screening
Period Products and Our Bodies
Menstrual Health and Period Tracking
However we deliver our sessions, the people we work with are guaranteed to get the best information from our amazing expert medical volunteers!
We're having a bloody great impact so far...
PEOPLE REACHED BY OUR EDUCATION SESSIONS

MORE PEOPLE WOULD SEE THEIR GP ABOUT WORRYING SYMPTOMS
We also run a Leadership and Community Development Programme for BPOC BGP Team Members.
We're so proud to share our evaluation of the first complete year of BGP’s Leadership and Community Development Programme for BPOC team members, devised at the end of 2019.
