Period Undies are back!

Thanks to all your generous donations we are able to offer more free period undies to people in Tasmania!

Our Undies Project sends people on low incomes 5 pairs of period friendly underwear in their size. Period friendly undies absorb moisture. They are reusable. They're better for the planet and they're cheaper than buying single use items!

New Podcast Project: Trans and gender diverse advisors needed

It’s about time we made a podcast that shone a bright light on sexual and reproductive health for people who aren’t cis. This new podcast project aims to tackle the gender binary in reproductive health care. 

We don’t need to tell you that when it comes to reproductive and sexual health services the gender binary still reigns supreme.
