Barnsley Academy has teamed up with the Red Box Project to help tackle ‘period poverty’ in the community.

The Red Box Project itself is a community-based, not-for-profit initiative which aims to support young people throughout their periods by providing red boxes filled with free sanitary products to local schools.

The scheme was founded in March 2017 by three friends who decided to take action after reading about ‘Period Poverty‘ and the impact it was having on some young women, who were missing out on their education because they couldn’t afford the products they needed during their period.
