New C-card service for young people in North Warwickshire

Warwickshire County Council has commissioned the Integrated Sexual Health Service at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust to roll out the C-card scheme across North Warwickshire from 1 August 2017.

The scheme offers young people, aged 13 – 25 years old who live in Atherstone, Nuneaton, or North Warwickshire, the opportunity to get free condoms and maintain good sexual health.

Charlotte Hubbard, Head of Integrated Sexual Health Services at the Trust, said: “It’s important that young people take responsibility for their own sexual health.  That’s why we’re delighted to be rolling out the C-Card scheme across North Warwickshire.  The C-Card offers free condoms for 13-25 year olds.

“We want young people to have fun but stay safe.  It’s really easy to sign up; they just go to one of the chemists below, which are easily identifiable by a purple sticker in the window.”
