C-Card for free condoms

C-Card for free condoms

Under 25’s get free condoms & lube across Brighton & Hove

C-Card scheme

C-Card is now app-based and even easier to use. You can download the C-Card app on your smart phone in Apple store or Google Play :

 Apple Store

 Google Play

If you are over 16, you need to watch a quick video and answer a few quiz questions to unlock your app.

If you are under 16, you will need to visit one of our SHAC services to have a quick chat with a trained professional and make sure that you are happy & safe – they will then unlock your C-card app for you to use.

Once you have the app on your phone, you can visit any C-Card site, scan their QR code and show your collect screen to a member of staff. They will then give you 6 condoms and a lube for free – no questions asked!

You can collect a condom pack every 7 days. You can ask for more if you need them.

All C-Card sites also offer free home Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea test kits and most C-Card pharmacies also provide FREE Emergency Contraception (sometimes called “Morning After Pill”) to under 25’s.

You can also order a home test kit through the app and find a list of free EHC (Emergency Hormonal Contraception) pharmacies.

C-Card Collection Sites

C-Card sites display the C-Card logo in their window and you can also find a map of C-Card sites in the app. You can find a map of sexual health services in Brighton and Hove here.

This includes School Health drop-ins, college Sexual Health drop-ins and some services working with young people such as RU:OK? and the Youth Offending Service.
