Free period products survey

Closed 28 Jan 2022

Opened 10 Dec 2021


No one should feel embarrassed or miss school or work because they don’t have the period products they need.

That’s why free, high-quality sanitary towels, tampons, and reuseable period pants are available across East Lothian. These are available in schools, libraries, community centres and some local GP practices.

Posters, stickers, the council website, and a Scottish Government app show where products can be picked up.  The app is due to be launched in December 2021. 

Free products are available for anyone who needs them. Supplies are restocked regularly.
