Femme 2 You
Here at Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, we know how difficult the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown has been for people. Everyone’s lives have been turned upside down and there has been a negative impact on people’s income, health and wellbeing. That’s why we have launched our new COVID-19 relief project, Femme 2 You.
In times of economic uncertainty, unfortunately, many women cannot afford basic hygiene necessities, including sanitary products. The Femme 2 You project is helping to tackle period poverty by providing free sanitary items to women who may have limited access to hygiene and sanitary products, because of financial or personal issues. We deliver parcels to women who have accessed our services previously, women who use our self-referral service and referrals we receive through external agencies.
Each ‘pick me up’ parcel contains much needed hygiene and sanitary products, as well as an information pack with contact numbers and information for support services, that are available throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
So far, we have delivered over 400 parcels to women across the Wirral community, through our delivery service.
To help us to support women across Wirral, the project relies on funding and donations. So far, we have managed to secure small funding pots from Tesco Bags of Help Grant, PH Holt Foundation and Clinks COVID-19 Response Fund, which have empowered us to help women through these difficult times.
We are incredibly grateful for the support that we have received from local partners who have kindly donated to the project and enabled us to help support more women including: Pink Box Project, Heswall Soroptimists, Merseyside Police, Asda Community, Bee Wirral and Charles Thompson’s Mission.
We want to continue to support and empower women across Wirral, so that we can get through this crisis together.
