Council one year trial on free period products
At the full meeting of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council on March 30, members ratified a decision to provide free sanitary products in Council’s leisure centres on a one-year trial basis.
This will be in order to assess the viability of implementing the ‘On the Ball’ campaign against period poverty across all Council offices, sport and leisure facilities. The trial will include:
* Roe Valley Leisure Centre
* The Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre
* Coleraine Leisure Centre
* Sheskburn House
* The Jim Watt Leisure Centre
* Dungiven Sports Centre.
As per normal Council procedures, all decisions are subject to the ‘call-in’ process.
