If you are aged between 13 and 25 you can get free condoms through the local C-Card (condom-card) scheme.  The scheme is offered at lots of different locations across Wakefield to make it easy for you to get condoms when you need them. Once you have registered with the scheme, you can get them from anywhere where you see the C-Card symbol as well as from your local CaSH and GUM clinic.

What’s involved in getting a C-Card?

When you visit one of the places listed to register for a C-Card you will need to fill in a registration form, a trained advisor will be on hand if you need any help with this or if you have any questions.  The information you give is confidential within the C-Card scheme.

The advisor will go through some questions with you.  This is to make sure that sex is your decision and that you fully understand the potential risks including Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

When you get your C-Card you’ll also get information such as how to use condoms properly, what to look for to make sure the condom isn’t damaged or out of date, and STIs.

C-Card venues

First register at one of the registration points listed on this C-Card page, then you will be given a C-Card so that you can pick up condoms from any of the registration or pick up points below:
