How does the C-Card work?
The C-Card allows you to get free condoms from a range of places likes GP surgeries, sexual health clinics and pharmacies. You may also be able to use your C-Card at your school or college.
The card will not have any personal details on it like your name, it will only have a unique number on it. On the back of each card there are a number of boxes and one will be crossed off every time you pick up your new pack of condoms.
