Home delivery service for period products
We encourage you to pick up products while you are out in the community if you can, however, if you struggle to go out then you can order online for delivery to your home. This is a free service but you must provide an Aberdeenshire Council postcode for delivery.
The system enables you to complete an order form for period products. The products that are available are:
- disposable sanitary pads
- reusable pads
- period cups
You will receive a two month supply of the chosen products. These products will be sent directly to the address you have specified on the order form.
We aim to get your products delivered to you as quickly as possible, please allow 4-5 weeks for delivery. However, we are aware due to peaks in demand there can be a delay on deliveries. Please bear with us while we work to resolve this.
