About Tricky Period

Tricky Period is a Period Poverty initiative developed by grassroots homelessness group Streets Kitchen.  In short we get period products from those more able to afford them to those who simply can’t afford and/or can’t access these essential items – those amongst us who are being forced to risk poor health, humiliation and at times arrest.

Tricky Period regularly supply products to a number of women’s shelters, refuges, mother and baby assessment units as well as directly to our friends on the streets via our Streets Kitchen tables, breakfast outreach and Showerbox London

Alongside this we are uniquely working with an ever growing number of council libraries who are acting as Tricky Period product pick up points. We recognise libraries as being safe, non- judgemental community spaces where anyone no matter of their circumstances can freely walk in and use as many or as few of the services on offer as they wish, making libraries ideal collaborators for Tricky Period.

We ensure that the process to receive products is simple, discreet and most importantly No Questions Asked . (click here for more details on how the process works)

Tricky Period believe that no-one should have to choose between a sandwich and a sanitary pad; between good and poor physical and mental health; between humiliation and dignity.

TOGETHER WE ARE WORKING TO END PERIOD POVERTY
