The University’s commitment to ending period poverty continues as free delivery service offered to students.
Not able to get on campus? Feeling the pinch without SAAS payments rolling in, and jobs in short supply? Stirling University is offering not just free period products to get you through the worst part of the month, but a free delivery service too.
The Union posted yesterday indicating that students can access a free delivery service, getting rid of the pesky in-person aspect of collecting them from campus if you are studying remotely!
An array of products including tampons, sanitary towels, and menstrual cups, are available to order from the Union website here.
The service is available as a result of the Scottish Government’s “End Period Poverty” initiative, the first of its kind in the world. It aims to improve accessibility and convenience regarding period products, especially for those suffering in poverty who may not be able to afford these items.
We all have or know a personal story about getting an unceremonious period and being caught without sanitary products- hopefully never again. (Yeah right!)
Enrolled University of Stirling students will be able to order products for free.
If you have any questions or issues with ordering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
