Women and sport - breaking down more barriers and becoming period positive .

Edinburgh Hockey has joined the Period Positive Club movement.

Teaming up with FabLittleBag, the Club is ensuring that all women and girls feel they belong and are welcomed in the club. A key ingredient of that welcome is making sure every coach has an emergency supply of menstrual products on hand.

Although The Scottish Government has been addressing period poverty at a national level, providing free tampons and pads across the country, this complementary initiative is extending easy accessibility and reliability into the sports field and facilities; wherever our teams are playing.

Martha Silcott, CEO at FabLittleBag stated " A huge welcome to Edinburgh Hockey who have joined our Period Positive Club movement, hot on the heals of making positive changes to their kit. They have declared their commitment to ensuring that women and girls at their club have their basics menstrual needs met with organic cotton tampons and pads and FabLittleBags for easy disposal. Having the Coach’s Bags helps to break down the taboo, educate coaches and take away the angst and stress that can lead to women and girls leaving the sport they love.”
