The box project is our latest charitable project to launch offering free condoms, sanitary products and help and advice on a wide range of issues in partnership with Virgin Care. Launching in October 2020.

What is The Box Project?

The Box Project is the first of its kind from any UK Based pride, offering a FREE regular condom and sanitary/ menstrual cycle product service to people who need them. Working closely with our Box Project partner Virgin Care and associated partners Body Positive, we will actively encourage people to take the relevant pack for moments when caught short, in immediate need or due to lack of funds.

We also will promote and support people taking more pride in their sexual health by having regular testing to know their sexual status. The Box Project has been rolled out as a service available at a wide range of bars, pubs, clubs and other public areas as listed below but also operates as a postal service though our associated partners Body Positive.

What's inside the FREE to use packs?

We offer two packs:

PACK ONE contains 2 x Rubber latex condoms, 2 x lube sachets and some information on sexual health from our partners Virgin Care, associated partner Body Positive and some helpful information on a wide number of helplines that focus on a range of services within the local area. All packs also include helpful instructions on how to correctly wear a condom

PACK TWO Contains 1 x Tampon with applicator suitable for a medium to strong bleed and Towel again suitable for a medium to strong bleed as standard plus with some information on sexual health from our partners Virgin Care, associated partner Body Positive plus information on a wide number of helplines that focus on a range of services within the local area.
