Supporting Accessible Periods Through a Cost of Living Crisis

Cost of Living Grant - Girl Pack

Girl Pack, a volunteer-led charity, experienced rapid growth in the last 18 months in response to the increased demand for their 'Accessible Periods for All' initiative.

The organisation focuses on providing period care to girls and other menstruators in Milton Keynes, ensuring accessibility and support.

Recently, we awarded Girl Pack with a £10,000 Cost of Living grant to help sustain and expand its vital services.


"We were in a really tight spot..."

"...Trying to support over 100 partners and their communities with very little coming in to replace what was going out.  We were told about the cost-of-living fund by MK Food Bank, so we applied.”

The grant will provide stability during the winter months, allowing Girl Pack to purchase necessary items for their projects while seeking additional funding for the upcoming year.

“This grant means that we will be able to take on new partners, in new areas of Milton Keynes as yet unserved by our projects as well as support our existing partners.”
