How Can I Get Free Condoms

In this section


Using condoms every time you have sex is one of the most simple and effective ways to look after your sexual health. Condoms protect against unwanted pregnancy by stopping the sperm contained in semen from coming into contact with the vagina (which could lead to an egg being fertilised).

Condoms are also the only method of contraception that provide protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), by preventing sexual fluids from being transferred between partners. Made of very thin latex (rubber), they are designed to cover the penis and act as a barrier between it and the mouth, vagina, penis or anus.

You can also get internal condoms, which are just like other condoms except they fit inside the vagina instead of covering the penis.

Condoms are simple to use and are 98% effective when used correctly. They come in different sizes, fits, colours, flavours and textures. There are also latex free condoms for those with allergies.

Find out below how you can access Free Condoms from bSHaW.

Free condoms and sexual health support for young people

The C-Card scheme is a free and confidential service. It allows young people between 13-24 years old to access free condoms and lubrication.

If you are aged 13-15 you’ll speak with a friendly trained professional about sex, relationships and sexual health too.

You have the same rights to confidentiality as an adult, which means that we won’t pass on any information to your parents/carers or anyone else without your permission. The only time we may have to share information with other professionals is if you tell us something that makes us seriously concerned for your safety or welfare, or the safety or welfare of others.

Under 16s can register for the C-Card to access free condoms by visiting a C-Card Distribution Site in person.
