Fluxies was founded in 2017 by Paige Fashoni, as FLUX Undies. Being the first brand of period underwear to land in the UK, when reusable period products were almost non-existent, we started on our mission to reshape the future of period care. Since then, more than 200,000 people have switched to our reusable period underwear and we've stopped over 40 million (!!!) disposables from going to landfill. Fluxies also features a gender neutral range.
How do I know if I need help?
Of the thousands of referrals we receive each year, many are from people who don’t know what is wrong. They only know that their life is not enjoyable.
We often find people have waited several months or even longer before making contact. We encourage people to identify symptoms and make a referral sooner. Tackling issues at an earlier stage means quicker access to treatment and can prevent symptoms from worsening.
We know it takes courage to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. We offer a safe space where you can do that.

Following the success of our call companions service, we launched rainbow call companions: a free telephone befriending service for LGBT+ people who are lonely, isolated or in need of companionship and feel they would benefit from a friendly phone call every week or two. This is a service specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender plus (LGBT+) people aged 75+ who would like to speak to someone who’s also LGBT+.
Calls last for half an hour or so and you can chat about anything that interests you. What's great is that the same volunteer phones you every time, so you can get to know each other and share stories and laughter – for as long as you both want.
Rainbow call companions has been awarded by the NHS National Advisor for LGBT Health award (2022), which recognises outstanding work by individuals and groups across the NHS and VCSE sector to improve the experience of LGBT+ patients and the LGBT+ workforce and shine a light on examples of best practice.
