The Period Project is an Australia-wide initiative that provides support, menstruation products and essential living items to women, non-binary people, and trans men experiencing homelessness and housing uncertainty.

The Packs come in different styles varieties and each will have extras such as disposable scented bags, wipes, gloves and hand sanitiser. The assembly gets done by volunteers and at-risk and long-term unemployed women.

In 2019 we collaborated with 50+ partners to distribute more than 10,000 Period Packs, providing dignity and relieving pain and anxiety that women experience when they’re sleeping rough and their period arrives.

Period products are expensive and often unaffordable for the most vulnerable in society. We’d like to ask your help in sponsoring homeless women though their period. The idea is that each time you get your period it's your reminder to donate one pack of sanitary products to the Period Project, or you can donate $5 and we will purchase them on your behalf. You can sponsor once, or as many times as you like, all help is very much appreciated!

The Period Project acknowledges transgender males who are also in need of sanitary products. Our use of feminine pronouns and terminology is in no way meant to exclude them.

The Period Project operates across Australia and have projects in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Gippsland, Geelong and the Murray Region in Victoria.

We operate in South Australia under another charity project called Essentials for Women South Australia and in the Northern Territory we operate with remote indigenous communities under our project called Secret Women's Business.

We have partnered with Gift Box Organic. As part of this partnership The Period Project employs homeless women or women escaping domestic abuse to perform the packing and fulfillment of the Gift Box Organic subscriptions.

Contact us at any time via our Facebook page, or Email to discuss how you and/or your
organisation want to get involved with The Period Project helping people keep their dignity.

If you would like to make a financial donation to the The Period Project or sponsor a woman experiencing homelessness getting through their period, you can do so below using Credit Card or PayPal facilities through our secure payment gateway.

Note: To setup a monthly sponsorship please remember to select the Monthly recurrence option at checkout.
