Period poverty is a global issue affecting women and girls who don’t have access to safe, hygienic sanitary products, and/or who are unable to manage their periods with dignity, sometimes due to community stigma and sanction.

It doesn’t just refer to those who have no access to sanitary products — in some cases, women and girls have limited access, leading to prolonged use of the same tampons or pads, which can cause infection.

At the Brick, we believe everyone should have the dignity to access these essential items. If you need emergency period products, please order them below for free via I discreet and confidential order forms.

If you want to join the fight again period poverty, you can donate one out giving page or email us at alice@therbick.org.uk
