You can request tampons and pads for all flows and preferences, as well as maternity and bladder weakness pads by completing a simple, discreet form in the library and handing it to a member of staff.

While exact matches and amounts can’t be guaranteed, we will do our best to provide you with what you request, or something similar.

Pride and Periods is funded by the Axter Climate & Community Fund through Suffolk Community Foundation and supported by our partner organisations East of England Co-op, Bloody Good Period and Suffolk Community Foundation.
