This report presents the findings from the evaluation of a 6-month Scottish Government funded pilot project in Aberdeen exploring access to sanitary products.

Executive Summary

This report presents the findings from the evaluation of a pilot project exploring access to sanitary products. The Scottish Government funded a six month pilot in Aberdeen between September 2017 and February 2018 to explore options for providing access to free sanitary products in ways that provide choice and respect dignity. The pilot explored both targeted provision for those in low income households and ‘universal’ provision open to all students in the participating schools, college and university. It aimed to both gain insight into the issue of lack of access to sanitary products for low income households and students, and to explore options for providing access to free sanitary products for both groups with a particular focus on how this can be done in a dignified manner.
