What is C-Card?

Discover what the C-Card scheme is and how you can join.

C-Card is a scheme for young people to access free condoms and lube to improve sexual health.

When used correctly during sex, condoms are the only type of protection that help prevent both sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy.

It’s easy to get free condoms and lube packs through the C-Card scheme if you’re aged between 13 and 24.

You can join the scheme to get a C-Card from many youth organisations, pharmacies and GP surgeries, then use your C-Card to collect more condoms and lube packs.

If you’re aged 13 to 15, you’ll have a short discussion with a trained practitioner to ensure that you are safe and supported with your sexual health choices.

Joining: getting your C-Card

It’s free and confidential and you don’t need to give your name or address.

When you get your C-Card, you will also receive a starter condom and lube pack.

Collection: getting more condoms and lube packs

Take your C-Card to any C-Card Point or C-Card Lite Point to collect more free condoms and lube packs.
