Fort Community Centre is now open to groups who have booked through the centre. The centre is currently not open to the general public. Further updates will follow. Free Period Products in Edinburgh- Tell us what you think! Scotland is the first country in the world to provide free period products to anyone who needs them, thanks to The Period Product (Free provision) Scotland Act.  People will be able to collect period products in most public buildings from 2022. In Edinburgh free period products are already available in many places including schools, community centres, libraries and can be ordered online. All the products available through City of Edinburgh Council venues are supplied by Hey Girls, a social enterprise providing sustainably produced products.  As we prepare to fully implement this exciting Act in Edinburgh we would like you to tell us whether you have taken free period products for yourself or others, what period products you prefer and what you think would encourage more people to take products for their own use or to give to other people.   Please go to www.edinburgh.gov.uk/periodproducts and share your views. The survey will close on Monday 28th February. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. From humble beginnings in the new two-room extension to Fort Primary School in April 1987, Fort Community Wing has grown from running a few youth clubs into a busy community centre with adult education, community groups and sports activities added to the long-running youth clubs. The closure of the school in 2010 allowed the Centre to expand, gaining new office space, exclusive use of the gym hall and access to the playground and playing field. We have a variety of spaces available for hire and lots of equipment available for groups to use. The centre works in partnership with Fort Early Years Centre and North Edinburgh Childcare to deliver joint activities surrounding the new community garden space of which we have just had a new natural trim trail installed.
