WEST Dunbartonshire Council is making a bid to help tackle period poverty.

Working together with UK social enterprise, Hey Girls, WDC is making sure the community has free access to period protection in community venues across the authority.

Although usual collection venues are temporarily closed during COVID-19 pandemic, free sanitary products are still available throughout West Dunbartonshire and anyone who is in need of these products are able to access them through emergency food parcels from West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare and Food For Thought – a West Dunbartonshire postcode must be given for delivery and recipients must live in West Dunbartonshire.

To avoid multiple orders being sent to the same household, families are asked to consult with each other before ordering.
