Manifesto aim: Sanitary products

AIM:

  • FREE emergency sanitary products 

UPDATE:

  • Since having the shop we made sure that all of our sanitary products were sold at cost price for students, however due to changes within the shop, I will be working on getting sanitary products available to students in the Students’ Union building free of charge.

    Please feel free to take the products on the side in the toilets if necessary. However please be respectful of the products and do not take more than necessary.

    We also ran the #HomelessPeriod campaign where students donated their unused sanitary products to a local homeless shelter. 


UPDATE (17/10/17:

Chester Students’ Union have invested in sanitary products through our Advice and Representation Centre and Commercial Service. This is also the same pot of money in which we use to pay for our FREE condoms for students for safe sex. 
 
Students wanted FREE sanitary products, simply when students forget to bring some in their bag or if they are running short on money in that particular month. The sabbatical officers saw that this was successfully done at the Liverpool Guild and asked how they were able to do it at Chester Students’ Union.
 
Please feel free to take the products on the side in the toilets if necessary. However please be respectful of the products and do not take more than necessary. They are now available in the SU building toilets only, but not in the CH1 bar.
