Hello and welcome to All Yours
If you would like to request one of our boxes, please click here.
You can read about how All Yours started here and you can see what we are up to on our All Yours Facebook page.
When we started All Yours on 1st December 2020, we just wanted to provide some boxes of period products to people in our local community who were struggling to afford or access period products over the Christmas period.
Our simple ambition quickly turned into a much larger scale project, and in the first year of operation we have provided over 4500 period boxes, with the help of over thirty volunteers, across West Berkshire, South Oxfordshire, Reading, Basingstoke, and Wiltshire.
We have partnered with over 50 organisations working within the community including food banks, community larders, schools, youth centres, community cafes, local libraries, and homeless shelters.
We have two types of boxes we provide to community and welfare organisations. One is for adults with more experience of their periods. The adult boxes contain a mix of tampons and period pads. The other box is for teenaged and younger children who are just getting to grips with their periods. These boxes contain day and night period pads designed specifically for younger bodies.
You can request an All Yours box directly through this website if you need one. No questions asked. All the boxes are discreet boxes, and we will either post it to you, or deliver it to your doorstep, whichever way is quicker.
We have supported people of all ages to have a safe and dignified period and helped Mums, Dads, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents to ensure that their families have the period products that they need each month.
We have worked to ensure that people get a choice of the products they can request via our website, and we have provided reusable products from EarthWise Girls to those who wanted a long-term solution to their struggle to afford period products.
We have been told some heart-breaking stories of period poverty and helped many people who had been using improvised, unsafe alternatives to manage their periods.
We have heard from some amazing people during the last twelve months who have cheered us on despite their own struggles. We have met some amazing people working within our communities to make life better for those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged.
And we have had to honour of receiving recognition for our work; Cara received the Prime Minister’s Points of Light Award and Caroline was awarded the Harper’s Bazaar Change Leader award at the 2021 Women of the Year Awards.
Supporting All Yours means that we can continue to make and distribute boxes. A period is not a one-off event and people will need support throughout the coming year.
