Cardiff University Students’ Union are giving away free tampons

Cardiff libraries also have emergency supplies


Cardiff University Students' Union are giving away free sanitary products for anybody that needs them, hoping to make life "a little easier".

The service is easily accessible and located in the Cardiff University Welcome Centre at the Students' Union, where students are able to pick up free tampons.

It's ideal for anyone attending Cardiff University who might have forgotten or ran out of sanitary products, or even during a Saturday night out at Juice. Let's be real, we all know how easy it is to get flustered in our busy student lives and to forget to prepare ourselves.

The tampons are placed in a plastic dispenser below the free condoms upon entrance of the SU, encouraging students to help themselves.

Bute Library offer emergency sanitary supplies

Jackie Yip, the President of Cardiff University Students' Union told The Cardiff Tab: "Menstruation is a natural part of life and the scheme aims to provide sanitary products for anyone that needs them.

"It is a priority that the supply will be maintained indefinitely so that it's accessible for anyone that needs free sanitary products in Cardiff University."

Jackie also said her next ambition is to get a dispenser located on the Heath campus.
