Issues with our phones

We are having intermittent issues with our phone lines. We are working with our suppliers to resolve them. If you can't get through please hang up and re-dial. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Request free sanitary products

With funding from the Scottish Government we provide access to free sanitary products. These products were available in our schools and some public buildings.  As many of these buildings are temporarily closed due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have introduced an online ordering service so you can still get access to the products you need.

This service is for anyone who menstruates and lives in Aberdeenshire that can’t afford or access sanitary products at this time. This is a free service, but you must provide an Aberdeenshire post code for delivery. 

The system enables you to complete an order form for sanitary products. The products that are available are disposable sanitary pads and tampons and individuals will receive a two month supply. These products will be sent directly to the address you have specified on the order form.

It may take up to three weeks for the products to arrive so if you require them urgently please contact ourfreeperiod@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.

If you don’t have access to the internet you can contact 03456 08 12 08 to request sanitary products. 

This is a new system and as such we will review it over the coming weeks in order to make any changes to how we provide these products in line with any coronavirus developments and advice.
