Wee White Bag

Access to free sanitary products in South Ayrshire.

wee white bag

We're supporting the Scottish Government's commitment of aiming to increase the number and range of places where free sanitary products are available. These are available from a range of locations in South Ayrshire including schools, council services and third sector organisations.

As part of the Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Act 2021, we are required to produce a delivery statement.  This was approved by Cabinet on the 14th June 2022 and sets out our arrangements for providing access to products across a range of locations throughout South Ayrshire.
