With funding from the Scottish Government we provide access to free period products.

This is a free service for anyone who has a period and lives in the Falkirk area (you must provide a Falkirk Council area postcode). If you are unable to pick up period products from our public buildings across Falkirk, you can use this service.

You will receive a 3 month supply of disposable products and they will be sent directly to the address you have specified on the order form.

* Please note orders for period pants will take 6-8 weeks for delivery due to ongoing stock issues with our supplier.

You can also order free period products by calling:

Product supplier: HeyGirls.co.uk

Free period products: Statement of provision

The aim of the scheme is to help end period poverty and the stigma around this, by making sure everyone who needs these products can pick them up for free at an easily accessible pick up point – with no questions asked.

The Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Act 2021 now requires local authorities to:

  • Ensure period products are generally obtainable free of charge
  • Education providers (have) to ensure period products obtainable free of charge by pupils and students; and
  • Specified public service bodies (have) to ensure period products are obtainable free of charge by persons in their premises.

Actions planned as a result of the consultation

Between November 2021 and January 2022 we consulted with people about the provision of Free Period Products in Falkirk. Respondents, for the most part, supported the approach we are taking and are in favour of online and broader community access.


In order to respond to the view that the main barrier to access products is not knowing where to obtain the products, we will raise awareness of the service by continuing to promote the service to communities across the Falkirk area. We will also publicise reusable free period product options to obtain a wider uptake.

This will include promotion on social media, Falkirk Council website and promoting the period product map.

Available products

We will provide a range of products, including:

  • Disposable pads, tampons and menstrual cups - these will be available in community and council buildings
  • Disposable products and re-usable products, including period pants, menstrual cups and period pads will continue to be made available online.
  • Continuing to provide period products in all primary, secondary and additional support needs schools across Falkirk

Methods for obtaining products

Products will be available within local premises. This includes schools, community locations, council offices and GP surgeries. Our list of locations will be reviewed on an annual basis.

  • Those accessing the products can order or take as many or as few of the products as required.
  • Online orders will be delivered directly from the supplier (Hey Girls).
  • We will aim to expand provision of products in GP surgeries across Falkirk.

Service review

We will review and renew the service consultation every 2 years and use this to inform future provision.
