Making up a box
Our general motto is to put as much as you can in the bag or box you are delivering to an individual/family so that you don't have to go back as frequently but at a minimum we should be looking to deliver the following:
Two packs of normal or regular flow (brands will vary but they normally call it normal or regular)
Two packs of heavy flow pads (again brands will vary and they might call it heavy, ultra or long)
Two packs of night packs (pretty much all the brands call them night pads)
Total of 6 packs, 2 of each absorbency.
Pads and tampons
One pack of normal pads
One pack of heavy pad
One pack of night pads
One box of regular tampons
One pack of super tampons
Total 3 packs of pads (one of each absorbency) and 2 packs of tampons (one of each absorbency).
A teen box should typically contain four packs of day teen pads and two packs of night teen pads.
Total six packs of pads (4 of day and 2 of night).
Rebecca will tell you if someone has a specific request for products. The most common request is for heavy flow pads and if this is the case I would recommend:
One pack of normal pads
Three packs of heavy flow pads
Two packs of night pads.
Total of 6 packs, mainly heavy flow and night pads.
If you pack your bag or box and have a bit of extra room, feel free to put more in!!
Top tip for the bags is to leave enough room at the top to close it and staple the opening edge together. So much easier than trying to tape it shut!
Sometimes we do have to improvise if we don't have the exact stock we need but I hope the guidelines above help. If you are ever unsure, you are always welcome to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can reply to Rebecca whose email address is email@example.com

Social Media Policy Statement
Social media is now a common part of daily life and we have produced a short statement available here on how we manage social media at All Yours and how we can support you if you would like to post about our work online.
All Yours has insurance to cover the volunteers that work for us. You can view our Employer's Liability Certificate and Public and Products Liability certificates below.
Safeguarding Statement and Policies
We are committed to safeguarding all our people from harm. This includes our volunteers and all those who use or come into contact with our services. We recognise that all our people, regardless of race, age, ability, gender, identity, sexual orientation, religion, or belief, have the right to protection from all types of harm or abuse.
We have robust processes in place to ensure that the people who join our organisation as volunteers, are suitable for their roles.
We take the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers seriously, as such we have systems and processes in place to identify and assess potential areas of risk across all our activities; and ensure remedial plans are put in place to address these risks.
All our volunteers and executives who deliver workshops or who have direct contact with children or vulnerable adults are trained to recognise signs which could indicate that a child or adult at risk may be being abused or neglected. We actively encourage our volunteers and those who use or come into contact with our services, to speak up about things which they think could cause harm to people and we act promptly when concerns have been raised. We will not tolerate any behaviours or practices which could lead to anyone being abused and/or exploited by our people.
