What is a C-Card?

The C-Card is a plastic card that gives you quick and easy access to free condoms from a range of venues across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire, including a number of pharmacies, doctors surgeries and supermarkets.

It is a confidential service which also offers information and advice about sexual health and relationships.

You can get free condoms using your card anywhere you see the C-Card logo.


How do I register for a C-Card?

You can register for a C-Card at any of our CASH clinics or at The Piccadilly Centre in Hanley (details below). You may also be able to register at your school or college.

If you have any questions about your nearest registration point call the sexual health information line on 0300 123 0970.

Registration takes about 10 minutes. You will be asked a few simple questions by the worker, how old you are, your postcode etc. 

All the information is confidential and will not be passed on to anybody else.
