One in ten teenage girls has, at some point, been unable to afford sanitary products. One in seven has had to borrow tampons or sanitary towels from a friend because they couldn’t afford to buy their own, but we can all be caught unawares at some point.
We believe that everybody should have access to period products when they need them, so we have partnered with registered charity Girl Pack to be able to offer free products to everyone when visiting centre:mk.
You will find baskets in out toilets containing single products which can be taken free of charge, with full packs of sanitary towels also available from our guest services desk. Simply ask one of the guest services team for a package for Sue, and they will be able to discreetly offer you a pack in a plain bag.
The true cost of periods is often hidden which is why Girl Pack also provide free period products to schools, foodbanks, community centres, retailers and many more locations all over Milton Keynes.
For more information on where you can access period products throughout the Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, please follow the links below where you can also find out about some of the key charities who are working to end period poverty in the UK and across the world.
