Argyll and Bute Council's education service is committed to ensuring that no young people in the area have to go without access to free period products during the Covid-19 crisis, when the usual availability in schools is restricted and when it is more difficult to get products from shops.

Many schools distributed period products to pupils before they closed, however, as the current Covid-19 Government restrictions continue, the council wants to ensure that pupils’ wellbeing needs continue to be met.  

For this reason, an arrangement has been made with Hey Girls, one of Scotland’s main providers of period products, that enables pupils to order from a range of products using a survey monkey link that simply requests your chosen package, school and your delivery name and address.

To order your products please visit: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZDQC8JT.  As this system is just getting started, and given the current delay in some postal service deliveries, please allow up to two weeks for delivery.

These products are free and are available to all children and young people in Argyll and Bute schools from P6 to S6.  While the closure of schools continues, you can place an order whenever you need it.
