Free Condoms & C Card

Using condoms is an effective way to reduce your risk of sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy.  All of our clinics offer patients free condoms every time you visit.

C Card

C Card is a condom distribution scheme that provides registered young people 13-24 years with a C Card which entitles them to free condoms. It also gives young people access to sexual health information, advice and support.

This initiative allows you to pick up free condoms from over 200 outlets throughout County Durham and Darlington once you have completed some straightforward registration details. The C Card is a plastic card the same size as a credit card.

If you would like a C Card you need to attend an outlet which offers C Card registration. If you already have a C Card you can attend any outlet to pick up free condoms.

PLEASE NOTE : It's still possible to access condoms at venues that are open. However it is likely that many C Card venues will be closed to the public at short notice in response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Some pharmacies across County Durham and Darlington may have amended their opening hours due to COVID-19. Please check with individual pharmacies for details.
