Tricky Period initiative

Tricky Period initiative

Homeless women and females on low incomes will benefit from a new service set up to provide free sanitary products at Norwich’s main libraries. The Tricky Period project involves the libraries taking donations of products and handing them out to people who cannot afford them, with no questions asked about proof of eligibility. Staff at Tuckswood, Earlham, West Earlham, Mile Cross, Plumstead Road, St Williams Way and The Millennium libraries have been taking in donations of tampons, sanitary towels and carrier bags for the last few weeks ready to start the scheme on Thursday 28 September. The Magdalene Group supports this initiative & can provide its service-users with any sanitary products they require.
