C-CARD condom distribution scheme


The C-CARD Scheme is a free condom distribution service for young people aged 13 – 25 living in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

How does it work?

If you are 13-25 and live in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, you can visit a C-CARD registration service to get your free C-CARD.

Registration usually takes about 10 minutes. You will be asked a few simple questions - how old you are, your postcode etc - and the provider will confirm that you understand how to use condoms effectively. All the information is confidential and will not be passed on to anybody else.

Once you have you C-CARD, you can visit any C-CARD point to pick up free condoms.
