Surrey County Council launches period poverty initiative with charity Binti
Surrey County Council is proud to be launching a ground-breaking initiative with charity Binti International, to provide free period products in selected locations across Surrey and be the first county council in the UK to start eradicating period stigma.
Katie Stewart, Strategic Lead for Equality Diversity and Inclusion at Surrey County Council, said "Surrey County Council is proud to be involved in this initiative in partnership with Binti International to provide equal access to pads so no one need suffer the indignity of managing their period without period products. We hope that Surrey residents will support this great initiative by donating products, and that businesses across the county will do so by providing products for their employees, so that more and more collection and donation points across Surrey can be provided. It's time for period dignity across Surrey".
