"Poverty is not a character failing or lack of motivation. Poverty is a shortage of money." - Barbara Ehrenreich

I believe that all people who menstruate should have access to sanitary products free of charge, regardless of financial or current living situation.
The solution is simple; a monthly allowance of products that are made available across the U.K.

We recognise and want to support all people who menstruate, not all of them are women and we want to include all people who identify with menstruating and those who sympathise with this issue and want to help.

The goal of this petition is that all people who menstruate in the U.K will be supplied with a sufficient monthly amount of sanitary products without charge. This may sound like a difficult task but I believe that with your support we can make the changes. The products would hopefully be made available from G.P practices and other outreach programs such as food banks and community groups.
According to a study in 2015 " British people spend as much as £18,450 on their periods over the course of their lifetime.

This is an extortionate amount of money to spend on a process we simply didn't ask for and should not have to pay for. 

Periods should not exploit us and our money. 

They are inconvenient and difficult at times, this is especially put to the test with living situations and financial issues.

I appreciate each and every person for reading this and your support on an issue which is very personal and important to me, I urge you to take a look at the following campaigns below who do amazing work and support them.

Even a simple act of visiting your local food bank with sanitary products would be very beneficial. Together we can be the change!
