West London Welcome has been proud to have been collaborating with our brilliant friends from Bloody Good Period for some months now, who partner with drop-in centres like ours to enable asylum seekers to get access to menstrual and contraceptive products and education around period poverty. You can read their in-depth report from last month, authored with our other friends at Women for Refugee Women, on the experiences of asylum-seeking women living in period poverty here.
We’re lucky enough to welcome Bloody Good Period back to our centre next week, on Thursday 21st November, for a session focused on contraception – all refugees, asylum seekers and migrants wanting to know more about reproductive and sexual health are welcome. The event is free, and will be led by Dr Steph Hanson, with Arabic and French translators present. Please see below for more details, and we hope to see you there.
