S5W-16512: Gillian Martin (Aberdeenshire East)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 8 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish the findings of the period poverty pilot that took place in Aberdeen.

Answered by: Angela Constance 16 May 2018

Our pilot in Aberdeen has allowed us to gain insight into the issue of lack of access to sanitary products and test different approaches to providing free sanitary products to those who need them most. This project has helped over 1,000 people in Aberdeen and parts of Aberdeenshire access products they couldn’t afford.

We expect to publish the report on the Scottish Government website by the end of May.
