Here at NUSU we strongly believe the University should provide free menstrual care products to students across campus. The Scottish, Welsh and English Governments have all introduced, or pledged to introduce, free provision of these items.
They’re not a luxury, they’re a necessity.
We’ve provided emergency packs in the SU for a few years, but now we want the University to provide items across campus, for everyone who needs them. I was voted into being President by students on this promise, our student council voted unanimously for the University to introduce this scheme, and there has been amazing work undertaken by individuals and societies to raise the profile of this cause. We’re getting close, so please answer the poll below!
Let’s end the stigma around periods, period!
