The Red Box Project is a charity helping to provide boxes of period products to young people in need.
Historically, the Red Box Project worked to provide period products to young people in schools in the United Kingdom. In 2020, the UK Government unveiled new legislation allowing schools in England, Scotland and Wales access to free period products.
As such, the Red Box Project is currently winding down certain operations, but continues to campaign for full access to period products for all around the home nations of the UK. They have also provided specialist support to frontline healthcare professionals during the Covid-19 pandemic.
