State funded schools and colleges received an activation email from the phs Group on Monday 20 January which will enable them to order free products for their organisation from the phs Group portal – a range of products will be available so that schools and colleges can offer choice to young people, including options that are better for the environment.
The launch of the government’s Free Period Products for Schools initiative is an opportunity not only to help pupils who menstruate to have products available when they need them, but helps schools to break the stigma around periods and raise awareness of menstruation.
