Condoms are the only form of contraception that, if correctly used, protect against both sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy.
If you are under 25 you can get free condoms by signing up to the C-card scheme. Check out this video on TikTok
When you sign up you will be given a demonstration on how to use a condom correctly, information on making choices and safer sex and then given a C-card which you can show at a variety of services to pick up more free condoms. You will also be given 2 sachets of lube each time you use your C-card to pick up free condoms.
To find your nearest C-card site, go to the Service Finder Tool .
If it is your first time getting a C-card, you will need to ask if you can sign up to the scheme when you get there. You may need to book an appointment before going, make sure to check this by clicking on your chosen C-card venue and reading the detail. Staff are approachable, friendly and the service is confidential.
All Sexual Health Clinics offer free condoms to people of all ages.
If you are a professional who wants to find out about delivering the Ccard scheme you will first need to attend the WISH Tier 1 and 2 Training courses. Read more and sign up here.
