How the funds you raise will support women and girls in the UK…


Ensuring Provision


We’re starting in Sheffield where we’re working with the local council and other local partners to provide women and girls with menstrual products.


Providing Protection


We’re creating tailored information packs, providing women and girls with details about how to access more support, well being and resilience resources and education materials about puberty and periods for young people not in school.


Restoring Power


We’re enabling people to take action by joining our campaign, sharing their experiences of lock down and getting support through our online community.

Just £10 enables us to reach another woman or girl with an Empowerment Pack containing the resources she needs to experience Lock Down with dignity.
