- Are you under 25?
- Do you want free condoms?
If YES then the C-Card scheme is for YOU!
Camden's C-Card scheme (also known as Come Correct) gives young people (aged 13 - 24) quick and easy access to condoms. It also offers a safe environment in which young people can get advice and information about sexual health and relationships in community settings. The c-card scheme is a free and confidential service. You don't even have to be sexually active to join – even if you are only thinking about having sex, you can register and be ready.
What is a C-CARD?
There are many different c-card schemes across the UK. Camden's scheme, the C-card uses a small card like an oyster card. Once you have registered with the scheme, you will be given your card, which will have on it a barcode and your unique identity number. The Camden C-Card is part of the Pan London Come Correct C-Card scheme, this means if you see the C-Card symbol anywhere else in London you can use your C-Card there to get free condoms.
The information you give when you register for the scheme (date of birth, postcode, condom preferences, etc) will be stored securely on the c-card database. This will enable you to get free condoms quickly and easily from any of the participating outlets in Camden and all over London.

Where can I find information about sexual health and relationships?

And the workers at c-card registration centres will either be able to answer your questions or point you towards someone who can.About
