Free period products to be available in schools

Free period products in schools

State schools and colleges in England can now order free period products for students as part of a government scheme to tackle period poverty.
Tampons, pads and menstrual cups will be available for primary and secondary schools to order if they opt in.

The scheme aims to help prevent children missing school if they don't have access to products at home.
