Provision of Free Period Products in the Community

Closed 28 Feb 2022

Opened 17 Jan 2022


In 2020 The Period Product (Free Provision) Scotland Act was enacted making Scotland the first country in the world to make it mandatory for free period products to be made available to anyone who needs them.

People will be able to collect period products in the majority of public buildings from November 2022. In Edinburgh free period products are already available in a number of venues including schools, community centres, libraries and can be ordered online.

The City of Edinburgh Council and partners would like to find out from you how much you take free period products in your community venues, what other products you would like made available and what would you think would encourage more people to take products for their own use or for giving to others who might need them.
