A free contactless delivery service of period products has been launched in Dundee, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Dundee City Council will deliver items such as pads and tampons as part of an initiative to tackle period poverty.
Free sanitary products were made available in schools from autumn 2018, and the products became available in 40 public buildings across the city.

We have a range of products that can be delivered to your home for free.

Project spokeswoman councillor Lynne Short said: “The council made a commitment to ensure everyone has access to free period products and during these difficult times it is perhaps more important than ever to ensure people have access to them.
“During a crisis it can be more challenging for people to manage their periods and that is why it is important that we have set up this free service.”
She said: “No one should be penalised because of their periods and I would urge anyone who requires period products to get in touch and we will arrange for them to be delivered to their door.”
