We at Skills for Growth are here to support our learners, and have organised sanitary products to be available if needed to all of our young women, across our sites.  

Alarmingly it has been reported that nationally one in ten girls has been unable to afford sanitary wear, (according to new research from global Girls Rights charity Plan International UK).

If you’re struggling to afford sanitary products please let your tutor know.

Bloody Good Period aims to create a sustainable flow (pun intended) of sanitary protection for those who can't afford to buy them.
