The Red Box Project Newcastle

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

Many young women in the UK are missing school because they have started their period and find it hard to obtain sanitary products. The result? Anxiety, embarrassment, missed lessons, missed education. 

The Red Box Project Newcastle is a charitable community initiative which provides red boxes filled with donated sanitary towels, tampons and spare pants to local schools. The boxes are kept with an appropriate member of staff and are available for girls to access whenever they need to.

If she needs supplies for her whole period, we've got her back. No tearful panics in the loo. No anxious embarrassment. No missed lessons or staying home. This is a simple project and is entirely funded by community kindness.
