Cllr Linda Erskine, Spokesperson for Communities and Leisure Services said: “We have been offering free products across Fife since 2019 and we want women and girls to continue to have access to free products in a dignified way.

“I'm delighted that the Council have provided additional funding so that people can once again order these products online and have them delivered to their home.  The cost of sanitary products can be a big issue for people in poverty, and it's important that these essential products are made as accessible as possible to all who need them, particularly during a time where the cost-of-living crisis continues to take hold.  This is just one of the services that we aim to try and help with so that people can save what they have for their household bills,”

Georgie Nicholson, Partnerships and Contracts Manager at Hey Girls said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Fife Council again to offer sustainable period products to residents in need, following the success of our initiative in 2020.

‘The ability for people to access free and quality period products is extremely important in reducing poverty across the board.’

"People immediately in need of products in the county can also use the PickupMyPeriod mobile app to find their nearest venue supplying free pads and tampons.

"Working alongside Fife Council is a real joy – it is fantastic they recognise the role they have to play in the fight to end period poverty."
