East Kilbride Housing Association tackles period poverty with Hey Girls
EKHA first housing association to partner with Hey Girls on project to offer free sanitary products to staff and tenants.
East Kilbride Housing Association (EKHA), in partnership with social enterprise Hey Girls, is currently piloting a scheme to supply free sanitary products to staff and tenants. The association said it is “very keen to join the movement on tackling the issue of period poverty” and is “delighted that we are the first housing association in Scotland to work with Hey Girls on this project”.
The service is being advertised on EKHA’s social media accounts, office bathrooms, interview rooms and in newsletter articles and leaflets.
A spokesperson from Hey Girls said: “Menstrual health is an important issue for everyone because it implies all people should have access to basic toiletry and sanitary needs.
“So thank you East Kilbride Housing Association for making a difference on so many literal doorsteps and then some. We could not be prouder to be working alongside you to stop period poverty, one period product at a time.”
