Free period products

Got you're period? We've got you!

As part of our support for communities and a commitment to equality, we offer free period products to anyone who needs them. To achieve this, we work in partnership with community planning partners, community organisations and the Scottish Government.


We have now reopened a number of our facilities and have restocked them with products so people can have access to what they need. We will continue to make products available in as many places as possible, and specifically through local community organisations, leisure facilites, community centres, libraries, NHS health centres and nurseries.

If you have a child at primary or secondary school your child should be able to ask for more products through their school.

Alternatively, you can download The Scottish Government App (PickupMyPeriod) where you can access locations across Scotland:

If you have any issues accessing products and want to recommend a facility in your area that does not currently have a supply of free products or you would like to access a different type of period product, please email
