C-Card Condom Scheme
The C-card scheme gives free condoms, lube and sexual health information to young people aged 13 – 19 years old. C-card is available from a range of venues across Lincolnshire where you see the C-card sign.
To join the C-card you need to register. This usually takes between 20 – 30 minutes and is your opportunity to ask questions about relationships and sexual health. You don’t need to be having a sexual relationship to use C-Card; sometimes it helps to talk to someone before you start having sex.
Once you are registered and have your C-card, you can get free condoms and lube from anywhere you see the C-card sign. If you need dams, please ask for them as they have may them available.
The scheme is completely confidential, unless the C-card Worker feels that you or someone else is at risk of harm or if a crime has been committed. If they need to tell someone else they will always tell you first.
By joining the C-card scheme you can be sure that you are getting help and support from people who are experienced in talking about sex and condoms – they won’t be embarrassed so you don’t need to be either.
If you are under 13 you can’t register with the C-card scheme. But if you need help and advice about sexual health you can still visit your doctor or a Contraceptive and Sexual Health Clinic (CASH).
Places that offer the C-card scheme will display a C-card sign.
