#TheHomelessPeriod

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. Sign below to put this to parliament.

About Us

We are Oli, Josie, and Sara, interns who met at the London advertising agency BBH. 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.
