How you can help to support the GAPP Initiative!

 

Thank you for visiting our web pages we are so pleased you want to help support the GAPP Initiative and our local community.

 

Help us to keep momentum going making it possible for us to help those in our local community who most need this kind of support.

 

All donations of sanitary products are used to support those in our local community who may not be able to afford such items.

 

Access to safe sanitary products should be a basic human right! Being without these products is unthinkable!

 

So with your help we might make life a little easier for others!

 

Thank you for supporting local women and girls through the GAPP Initiative.

You may be aware of the many groups, charities, organisations and petitions across the UK who have been coming together with the aim of trying to make a difference, some are making much progress in trying to help tackle 'Period Poverty'.

Particularly a petition this one which was started by Amika George, only a teenager herself, who has helped to influence Government Policy through her Free Periods Campaign. Earlier this year, Chancellor, Philip Hammond announced in the Government’s Spring Statement, that they plan to make sanitary products available free to High Schools and Colleges. However, further details haven't been made clear yet, with some issues remaining unresolved at the moment. For further details see link to article in the Independent Newspaper on-line below. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/voices/spring-statement-philip-hammond-period-poverty-schools-menstrual-products-a8821016.html%3famp 

Latest news:- Primary school pupils in England to be given free sanitary products. Ministers to provide towels and tampons from early next year to tackle period poverty

Please write to your local MP to request the UK Parliament to act now to end Period Povery using our template letter.
