Our Partners

We work with a fantastic group of partners across our portfolio of brands.

You might have noticed that we’ve partnered with Starling Bank this year. 

This is an exciting partnership for us as we’ve been (happily) banking with them for a while now. 

We love Starling’s time-saving features, speedy setup and helpful integrations with accountancy software – and we think you might, too’.

Hey Girls was founded by myself and my daughters Becky and Kate, with the philosophy that girls and young women should never have to compromise their wellbeing or their health.

Having been a single parent I understand firsthand the financial strain of buying period protection when struggling to survive on benefits.

The situation for women just like me hasn’t changed in twenty years, which is why we set-up Hey Girls.

We seek to enrich the lives of girls and young women in the UK by exercising social and ethical responsibility in every aspect of our work - from where we source our products through to our supply chain, and the way we run our social business.
