Free Period Products For All

We're providing free products to everyone who has a menstrual cycle!

We are proud to work alongside the Scottish Government, University of Strathclyde and Hey Girls in a bid to end period poverty. We want all Strathclyde students to have access to the products they need. Learn about the Social Enterprise on a mission to eradicate Period Poverty from the UK, and empower people on their period:

VISIT Hey Girls Website

“At Hey Girls, we believe everyone should have access to high quality period care. We understand that it’s not just women who menstruate, and Hey Girls will always offer support, guidance and solidarity with anyone who chooses to use our products.

The Scottish Government has pledged more than £5 million to provide free period products to pupils and students in schools, colleges, and universities. Strath Union has been at the forefront of this initiative and was one of the first students’ unions to start offering free period products to every student who needs them. These products are for everyone: from students who are struggling to afford to buy them, to those that forgot to bring a spare – please take them and use them!

Where can I find free period products?

We are proud to announce our partnership with local Scottish business, Hey Girls, through which we are able to provide a range of reusable products available for collection at Strath Union.
