Petition Action

Fund extending the free period product scheme to include University Students.

Petition Details

Extend the free period product scheme used in England and Wales to include University Students and switch to reusable period products to reduce waste and period poverty.

Menstruating University students should not have to miss education or extra-curricular activities for a period.

Additional Information

Covid-19 lockdowns have further increased levels of period poverty by making it more difficult to access and afford period products.

Reusable period products include menstrual cups, period pants and reusable pads.
