In Scotland 1 in 5 women are affected by period poverty which is 1 too many!
Here in Angus the period poverty work has progressed significantly over the past 6 months following the creation of a multiagency steering group and survey results collated from the distribution of the period poverty boxes throughout the area. The steering group co-produced an action plan with the vision:-
To Eradicate Period Poverty in Angus by 2021
In order to achieve this vision we are launching Free Period Angus which will provide increased communications, education and showcase the work scheduled for the coming months including the new Facebook and Instagram pages which will include key messages to support the vision.
