welcome

c-card Hertfordshire is a sexual health scheme for young people up to the age of 25 years. Whether you're a young man or a young woman, straight or gay, this scheme aims to help young people to:
  • Make the right CHOICES regarding relationships
  • Get free CONDOMS to prevent unplanned pregnancies and reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • Get tested for CHLAMYDIA and other STIs
  • Understand the types of CONTRACEPTION available



 

 

how does the c-card work?

You will be able to pick up free condoms where you see the c-card logo but you will need to register first at a registration point. You will then be issued with a card which contains a unique ID number. You will need this every time you pick up your free condoms from either a registration or easy access point. Before you go to a c-card point, click here to find opening times and service information for all Registration and Easy Access Points within Hertfordshire.

 

 

what happens at a registration point?
  • You will have the opportunity to discuss how to use a condom safely and ask any questions you may have around sexual health.
  • You will then be issued with a key ring (see picture) which contains a unique ID number. You will need this every time you pick up your free condoms.
  • You will receive condoms, lube and information leaflets when you have completed your registration.
We do ask for your date of birth and part of your postcode. We do not take your name. This enables us to see where young people prefer to get their condoms. Nothing will be sent to your home address. The information is only used for reports, no one is identified from it. Remember, all sessions are fully confidential.*

what happens at an easy access point?

You will only be able to pick up condoms/dams when you show your c-card. The person will take the number of your card and issue you with one packet of 6 condoms.

*Confidentiality will only be broken under very exceptional circumstances e.g. if, in our professional judgement, we believe there is a risk of abuse or harm to oneself or others.
