It doesn’t bear thinking about… and that’s the problem

For homeless women, it really is that dreaded time of the month. With limited or no access to sanitary products, they're often forced to go without. This initiative believes that tampons and towels should be made available through homeless shelters, the same way the government provides condoms. To show your support, share the site, sign the petition, or donate a tampon.

Shelters get an allowance every year to buy items like condoms, but still nothing for sanitary products. Our petition passed its goal of 100,000 and has since been raised in parliament

About Us

We are Oli, Josie, and Sara. We met as interns at a London advertising agency. We found the issue made us think about homelessness in a way we hadn't before. We spoke about it with shelters like Spires UK, and later recorded an interview with Patricia – a woman who slept rough in Brixton for 6 months.
