Feedback from schools and kura has continued to highlight the urgent need for products. To address this, phase one of this initiative is focused on delivering products to schools and kura as simply and as quickly as possible.

Orders for products which include pads and tampons are now arriving into around 1680 schools and kura that have opted-in.  Since orders opened at the start of June, 956 orders have been received with 693 already processed – up to 78,000 packets of pads and tampons.

Schools that have not yet opted-in to the initiative can still do so. As schools and kura continue to opt-in and place orders, product will be progressively distributed to them.  Schools and kura need to opt-in to access period products via a simple form.
