Further information

Aberdeen City is providing access to free sanitary products in all schools from the start of this school year. Pupils will be able to take as much product as they need and will be encouraged to take enough product to last weekends and during holidays.

Aberdeen City Council are working with Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE) to make sure that schools are provided with a range of sanitary products. Once the project is successfully running in schools we will look into providing re-usable products as part of the offer to pupils.

Free sanitary products will either be available in a designated area or from a designated person in the school. Some schools have opted to trial having baskets of sanitary products available in female toilets. Alongside this project, CFINE are providing free sanitary products for low income families throughout Aberdeen. A list of community venues providing free sanitary products is available via the link www.cfine.org/sanitary-products.

Here is an sample of the leaflet that will be sent to all girls in secondary.
