Commenting, NUS Scotland Women’s Officer Shuwanna Aaron said:

"We welcome today’s anticipated announcement of additional funding for access to sanitary products at colleges and universities. No student should be put in the position of not being able to access basic sanitary products, just because they can’t afford them.

“By helping to remove a financial barrier that previously was overlooked by many, this funding will hugely benefit students across Scotland.

“I look forward to continued work with students’ associations and the Scottish Government going forward, to ensure sanitary products are available on a basis that is sensitive to all who need them.”
