About Us

What we do

Menstruation Matters aim to relieve period poverty of those living in South Yorkshire by supplying free menstrual products to those who otherwise cannot afford them. We also increase the awareness of and advocate the use of reusable period products to the people of South Yorkshire.

Support Menstruators

These include refugees, those who are fleeing sexual and domestic abuse, Mother and Baby groups, Young Carers, and many more in South Yorkshire.

Care Packages

Period products are donated to us by the public, which we use to create Care Packages - either Pads only, Tampons only, or Mixed!

Monthly donations

We donate monthly care packages to provide our local community with ongoing support for safe and healthy periods all year long.

Our Trustees

Menstruation Matters was founded in 2018 as a social accountability project. Since then it has developed into a UK-registered charity composed of university students, junior doctors and young professionals working together for a single purpose; to combat period poverty!
