An introduction to our team
WHO WE ARE...
Rachel took over as Bloody Good Period CEO and Bloody Good Employers Director in May 2022.
Joe leads Bloody Good Employers, as well as working across youth, creative and third sector spaces, focusing on building programmes and projects that commit to long-term inclusivity.
Gabby Jahanshahi- Edlin
Gabby started Bloody Good Period in 2016, when she found out that very few food banks and asylum seeker drop-in centres were providing period products—despite an obvious, desperate need. She successfully developed BGP from a Facebook whip-round for products to a growing, trailblazing charity, and later co-founded the Bloody Good Employers program alongside Joseph Gray.
After nearly six years of running BGP, Gabby stepped down in May 2022, handing over to her previous deputy, Rachel Grocott.
Working closely with Joe, Elysha manages the day-to-day activities involved in the programme, working with partners to remove challenges people who menstruate face in the workplace while securing new revenue to support the people we work with.
Terri has been a pioneer in the menstrual health movement in the UK. She has worked both internationally, across the Middle East and East Africa, as well as in the UK, delivering menstrual health education and training for those less likely to access it.
Terri is passionate about disruptive, ethical and decolonial thinking within the menstrual equity movement and has campaigned hard to ensure that menstrual education looks to meet the needs of all people who menstruate.

“It was great to see how valuable the team found the first Bloody Good Employer’s workshop, with everyone really engaged.
I personally found it a safe space to explore menstrual health in more detail and reflect on how that translates into a work environment. I’m looking forward to the next session!”
