Age 13 – 15
If you are aged 13 – 15 you can only get a c:card from a c:card plus point.
When you get there, you will be seen by a trained c:card worker on a one-to-one basis in a private space. They will ask you some questions to make sure the situation you are in is safe. On your first visit they will also show you how to put on a condom.
You don’t need to give your name or address to register for your c:card. All you will be asked for is your date of birth and the first part of your post code – this information is confidential and you can’t be traced from it.
Once registered, you will be given a purple c:card card with your own personal number on it – this is your c:card to keep and use again. You will also get a purple information leaflet and a points list showing you where else you can go to use your c:card.
The worker you see will show you all the condoms in the c:card range and help you to make a choice of condoms and lube.
Next time you come the c:card worker will chat to you about how you are getting on and answer any questions you may have.
Remember c:card is confidential. This means we won’t tell your parents or guardians, your doctor, your school or anyone else that you are using c:card unless we think you or another young person under 16 years old is being harmed or at risk of being harmed.
