Period Promise Northumberland

Periods are just a fact of life. But if you're living in poverty - or vulnerable in other ways - access to necessary menstrual products can be challenging.

Period poverty is much more common in our community than you would think. Almost one-quarter of Canadian women say they have struggled to afford menstrual products for themselves or their children (Plan International, Period Stigma Report, 2018).

The Period Promise campaign by United Way, funded locally by Northumberland United Way and Thrive Northumberland, aims to address the issue of period poverty in our community while advocating for social change. Since its launch in 2020, nearly 12,000 menstrual hygiene products have been distributed to individuals, families, and non-profit organizations locally.

Learn how you can take action in your community and help end the stigma around periods. Help people live with the dignity we all deserve. Make your Period Promise.
