Have you had a really comprehensive education about female sexual and reproductive health? 


Us neither. 


Nor have the women and menstruators we work with. 


That’s why we created Bloody Good Education - a programme that provides free female sexual and reproductive health education to asylum seekers, refugees, and people that cannot normally access it. 

Bloody Good Education sessions are monthly, and take place in some of the different drop-in centres that we currently operate based in London, such as West London Welcome in Hammersmith and Women For Refugee Women in Old Street.


 Sessions typically last around an hour or so, with time for a Q&A, and take a strong co-creation approach to both content and delivery style. We ask participants at the beginning of each session what they want to learn and tailor information accordingly. All sessions are facilitated by qualified gynaecologists and sexual health professionals, as well as education volunteers that support on a whole host of activities - from ensuring feedback is gathered, assisting on preparation logistics, and generally just being babes.


If you visit one of the drop-in centres we work with, and are interested in coming along to one of our Bloody Good Education sessions then send Hannah an email [email protected]



Bloody Good Education sessions are free to attend and are supported by gorgeous volunteers - from facilitators through to our service delivery partners. Want to support the programme and keep Bloody Good Education... bloody good?! Here you go then THANK YOU

We love collaborating!! Our programme was initially kicked-off in collaboration with The Body Shop.

We continue to work with The Body Shop on our product distribution work too (they're the OG activist brand!) Bloody Good Education is also delivered alongside the angels at London In Your Language

    Colddddd harrdddd cash honey! Seriously though. It takes £££ to buy products and get them to where they're needed - did you know we deliver 119.4K packs of products last year? We do it by bulk-buying the products requested by our partners (more on that below), direct from suppliers, and delivering them to partners in England and Wales. This way of working enables us to maximise the number of people we can help. Oh yeah, and we also deliver some bloody incredible education sessions on menstrual, sexual and reproductive health which we couldn’t deliver without your support. You can be bloody awesome and donate here, or find out about organising a little (or big!) fundraiser here. You can also read more about our new way of working here. THANK YOU. *Please remember, we now have a pad-to-partner way of working, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*
    Where we give examples of how your donations can help (e.g. here), those examples are based on: Period products. We've taken an average of costs for the different product combinations that are most frequently requested by our partners. We bulk buy and negotiate some great bleeding discounts. Other costs to make our distribution happen. That includes transporting the products to where they're needed, storage costs for our reusable products, and staff costs to make the logistics, partnerships and magic happen. That magic includes…. Building sustainable, long-term relationships, so we can be sure to get period products to where they're needed, when they're needed - i.e. every single bloody month Supporting our partners with guides on period products and how to talk about menstruation, so we can better support the individual choice and autonomy of the people who receive products from us. We also run education sessions, getting menstrual, sexual and reproductive health information to those less likely to access it, and work to normalise periods for everybody, so your donations can also help us to do that bloody important stuff too.
    We work with over 100 partner organisations across England and Wales, getting period products to refugees, asylum-seekers and those who can't afford or access them. Our partners include foodbanks, Refugee and Asylum groups, and many more... Last year our education program reached 113 refugees and asylum seekers to access better menstrual health knowledge throughout England.
    Because we've changed our way of working, babes! We've refined a way of working that's helped us meet much higher levels of demand in a more efficient way, getting more products out to more people, across a bigger geographical area! Those products are also the ones SPECIFICALLY requested by the people we work with—guaranteed to be brand new and in-date. This model also means we have reduced costs on things like storage -so more money for more pads honey! You can read more about our new way of working here. You can also be bloody awesome and donate here, or find out about organising a little (or big!) fundraiser here. THANK YOU!
    Bloody Good Period provides period products to refugees, asylum seekers and those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford or access them. We have always prioritised the needs of the people we work with, trusting them to know which period products they prefer to use, or would like to try. We are mostly asked for disposable products, and we have increasingly included eco-friendly products in that provision. We also distribute menstrual cups, reusable pads and period pants. We have also been able to provide more information and support to those who would like to try reusable products, via our menstrual, sexual and reproductive health education sessions. We find that group support, expert knowledge and space to ask questions are often vital - it’s not just about giving out as many cups as we can, but allowing people to understand and work with their bodies in an entirely different way. We are pleased to have been able to distribute a growing volume of reusable products. We have always recognised that there is no one way to manage everyone’s periods or one magic solution to period poverty. As a small and growing charity, we also always planned to provide the right support to enable a greater switch to reusables over time, and are thrilled that this change is now happening - whilst also maintaining our focus on meeting the needs of the women and people we work with. Reusable products are not suitable for everyone, or a universal solution to period poverty. For example, refugees and asylum seekers generally live in accommodation without reliable access to lockable bathrooms to be able to practice using cups; or reliable washing facilities to keep cups or reusable pads clean. Many have also suffered trauma, at minimum displacement and the journey to reach this country, but possibly also including FGM, which makes using cups difficult or impossible. Our absolute focus, therefore, is always on getting women and people who menstruate the products they are familiar with and feel comfortable with. If you want to learn more, have a listen to our founder Gabby talking about product preference on Reni Eddo-Lodge’s About Race podcast. *Please remember, our way of working has now changed, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*
    Tampons are simply not as popular as pads with the people we work with. We only give away about 1 pack of tampons for every 500 packs of pads! *Please remember, our way of working has now changed, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*
    Damn, right we do! We run education sessions for asylum seekers, refugees, and people that cannot normally access it. We support workplace menstrual equity through our Bloody Good Employers program. We raise awareness of menstrual inequity and how it affects women and people who menstruate (read our report here). We talk about periods, helping to make them a normal, comfortable topic of conversation for everyone (check out our social feeds). And we campaign for real, meaningful change. Yep, we are all bloody over it.
    We would bloody love you to! Right now we need your help more than ever in getting pads and products to people who need them. We're seeing an ever-increasing demand for our services and we need £££ to support our work. You can be bloody awesome and donate here, or find out about organising a little (or big!) fundraiser here. THANK YOU.
    We don't work with schools or colleges, so, unfortunately, are unable to provide products or other support to these institutions. The Government's scheme to provide free period products to all English schools scheme has now launched - find further guidance here. We know this scheme doesn’t go bloody far enough in meeting the needs of all young people so we’re supporting young activists, and organisations to raise their voice! We are delighted that so many schools are passionate about ending period poverty and are keen to fundraise for us - and we've made a special fundraising pack for you! Here it is!
    We work with other organisations, including academic institutions, to recruit interns to join the BGP team. These internships are always paid. As we are a small team, we only have capacity to work with a very limited number of interns each year. Internship projects always align with our organisational objectives and work plans, as well as ensure interns gain valuable work experience and development opportunities within an intersectional feminist, activist organisation. We are unable to accept speculative applications.
