The idea for We-Stap(We supply toiletries and menstrual products to Women in Need) was created many years ago, when I worked as a health visitor. I visited a client who lived with her partner and three children and was experiencing domestic abuse. Her partner did not buy her anything and would not give her any money either. I enquired how she managed when she started her menstrual cycle, to which she cried and told me that she only had to use toilet paper.
I was very shocked by this and decided to raise funds to purchase menstrual products for her.
I left the role and didn't know what happened to her. However, I knew she couldn't be the only woman experiencing this and felt I had to do something about it”.
