Support Period Dignity in Surrey
Surrey County Council has launched a ground-breaking initiative, with charity Binti International, to provide free period products. The aim is to provide equal access to pads across Surrey, so no one needs to suffer the indignity of managing their period without period products.
There will be collection boxes where residents can help themselves to pads if needed, in selected libraries across Surrey, including:
There will also be collection boxes available in Surrey County Council buildings, including:
- Consort House – Redhill
- Woodhatch Place – Reigate
Look out for the Binti stickers in libraries that show that free pads are provided in that location. There is no need to ask – simply go to the collection box and help yourself.
Where can I donate products?
Anyone can donate tampons and pads to the Binti bins in the locations above – the more donations the better! Look out for the Binti stickers which show participating venues.
A Binti app is also available to download, so residents can find the nearest location where free period products are available to collect and where you can donate.
How can my organisation or business help with Period Dignity at work?
