We provide access to free period products with funding from the Scottish Government.

Why are we providing products for free?

Period products can be expensive. We know the financial pressures many households are facing, and families shouldn’t have to worry about affording period products.

The Scottish Government has introduced new legislation - the Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Act 2021. The Act requires local authorities to ensure period products can be easily obtained free of charge by anyone who needs them.

Products are free to anyone regardless of income. We want people to have access to free products in a dignified way and we want to reduce the stigma surrounding periods by raising awareness of the range of products available, promoting menstruation as an important area of health and wellbeing and tackling period poverty, whilst respecting individual dignity.

Where can I get free period products?

Period products are available in our public buildings, our schools, and are available through an online ordering service, run by our partners, Hey Girls. We hope having products in a range of places throughout Fife and online makes it even easier for you to access the products you need.

This service is for anyone who menstruates, and who can’t afford or can't access sanitary products. Anyone is welcome to take the products they need, even if you aren’t picking up products for yourself.

This is a free service for anyone living in, working in or visiting Fife.

Products are available at a number of locations throughout Scotland.

The Scottish Government, working with Hey Girls, have produced an app called PickUpMyPeriod, so anyone can find free products in Scotland. The app is available for download on Android and Apple devices.
