What is period poverty?

Period poverty is not being able to access sanitary products due to financial constraints.

Young girls from low income families are facing the realities of period poverty, not having access to the products needed to manage their monthly menstruation.

In the UK, 1 in 10 girls can not afford to buy menstrual products, while 1 in 7 have struggled to afford them, according to a representative survey of 1,000 girls and young women aged 14-21 by Plan International UK.


How does it affect young girls in the Borough of Bromley?  

From January 2020 state schools and colleges in England can now order free period products as part of a government funded scheme to help tackle period poverty. However, despite the supply of products there is still a growing demand that isn't being met.

The young girls affected are missing school because they have no access to the products that so many of us take for granted.

Ada & Albert have contacted a number of local schools in the Bromley borough who have expressed a growing need for more products.

Join us in a campaign to help lower period poverty and provide girls with basic necessities that no one should go without.

What is it like for girls experiencing period poverty?

Girls experiencing period poverty turn to socks, clean wash cloths and cardboard to help them through each month.

Period poverty is very real in our borough with girls unable to afford the necessities most of us take for granted.

An estimated 49% of girls have missed school due to their periods.

How can you help?


We are currently collecting donations of sanitary pads and tampons which will be distributed to the identified schools in the Bromley Borough who have expressed a greater need for free menstrual products.

If you can donate any spare packs or are able to purchase an extra pack when you next go shopping it'll be greatly appreciated.

Help support those experiencing period poverty.
