Young Scot research shows success of free period products scheme for students in Scotland

Over the past academic year (August 2018 – June 2019), the Scottish Government provided funding to make period products available for free in schools, colleges and universities. To find out what pupils and students think about this initiative, the Scottish Government asked Young Scot to help develop, host and analyse a survey of young people in education across Scotland.

Research has shown two-thirds (65%) of young women and girls in Scotland received free period products from their school, college or university in the past year.
